  1. Hey guys, how's it going.
    Purchased my first motorcycle just over 2 weeks ago, a 2013 Honda CB500FA. Really excited to learn to ride it and get into some longer trips and just good rides. I look forward to going to some of the meets and rides and might head down to one of the Sydney Learner Sessions as they look really good from what I've seen in developing the skills to do the MOST but also for me also just learning to handle the bike.
    Thanks Ed.

  2. welcome aboard :] let the good times roll
  3. Welcome to the forum! Nice choice in bike you have there.
  4. helllooooo and welcome
  5. Welcome, it's a great noob bike. It does the weekend away rides very well.
    Where are you from?
  6. Yeah I've found that it's got more power than I will need for quite a while. I live in Sydney, so I've done a few rides down wake hurst parkway but that's about it. Only finished buying all the gear today so once I've got the confidence would love to try something like old pacific highway.
  7. Old pacific hwy sucks
  8. Thanks guys for the warm welcome! :D

    Whaaat but I've only ever heard good stories. What makes it so bad?
  9. A speed limit that is way too low and a road that is perhaps the most heavily policed few km in NSW.
