Hi people! Following Instructions: I just joined up (to the forum). I'm a learner rider (well... as of Monday after the course) and about to purchase my first bike! I was very close to getting a bike a few years ago after doing HART training in Sydney... But never did. Not Following Instructions: Instead of buying a POS I put a deposit down on the new 2008 Ninja 250R. Now I just have to wait for the second or third shipment of them to AU and then I'm on the road Once my riding confidence is up a bit I'll come join the rides. I'm looking forward to doing a lot of riding in the future! Cheers.
