  1. Hi all,

    Introduction time. Male 28 years old and God willing I'm doing my Learners in a couple of weeks to finally satisfy the "I want a bike" mission about the third time it has come around since I was 16 or so.

    I live at Wollongong, where I'm an arts-law university student, (read: so I have no money).

    I'm probably looking for the $2500 GPX ZZR kind of thing. I'm 28, so I don't see the logic behind buying a repeatedly thrashed CBRRRR etc. for a year or two.

    Any advice on bike mechanics in the Wollongong area, buying bikes, places to get them inspected etc. would be very appreciated.

    Other than that, I really should get back to my university work. Hope to be on two wheels in a bit.

    Bye for now,

    Kane Mortlock. :)
  2. Hi there mate and welcome.

  3. Welcome and trust me, once you finally get a bike on the road you'll wonder why you never did it sooner.
  4. ...

    Well, the last two times it was money, (no need to wonder). :cry:

    Still a bloody issue. :evil:

  5. Welcome to the forums Kane. :)
  6. Welcome Kane - ignore everything that hornet600 and rc36Honda say, they're from the Gong too ! :twisted:
  7. Hey Kane,

    Welcome to the forum. If you need assistance with anything ( despite what some of the turds and wankers who know absolutely nothing about bikes keep flapping their gums ) RC36 and Hornet will not steer you wrong if you need assistance. :D :D :D

    Kane, one thing you will notice is that maybe 1% of people on this site know something about bikes and maybe 0.5% actually know how to ride well. The rest have great intentions but are definately to be steered clear from..... :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

    Me, personally, I will steer you in the wrong direction when it comes to riding. I cant ride for shite... :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

    Seriously though, enjoy the site.
