Hello All, new member as of Feb 12th ... been riding now for 37 (started at age 17) years and enjoy anything on 2 wheels.... Current rides are a pristine MV F4 2001 750 - one of the very first ones into the country and had it since new; an ageing Speed Triple 955i Warhorse. This old girl has seen duty as a daily commuter, a track day weapon, and a budget tourer...suitably fitted out it did Syd > Adelaide > Uluru > Tennant Creek > Rockhampton > Sydney last year; and lastly a vintage (1946) Danish Nimbus - one of only a handful in the country.. Reasoning that the correct number of bikes in your garage is always gonna be N+1 where N=current count; I just purchased an older (2009) oil-head R1200 GS. Last years trip to Uluru gave me a taste for longer rides... I'm an avid supporter of the Black Dog Ride and am running the 2016 Penrith 1-Dayer in March; and you'll find me on the State ride later this year. in 2015 we took the Black Dog ride to the US and enjoyed a memorable 21-day ride from NY to LA... I had a Harley Road King as my ride and I can say without reservation that it was a memorable ride... Between that and the Uluru ride I clocked up over 16,000km in 2 months... Hope to meet a few of you 'round the traps.
