  1. Hi all,

    I've been reading for a while and have just got round to signing up.

    Quick bike-bio...

    Rode a postie for 4 months a few years ago just for transport, sold it and didn't ride anything until April last year. Went to Vietnam in April and did a 7 day bike tour on a Honda 160cc - by far the best thing I have ever done! Bought a Kawasaki EL250 when I got back to NZ (where I was living at the time) and did a lot of day trips out of Auckland. Since moved back to oz late last year, sold the Eliminator and bought a '95 BMW F650 in Melbourne. Rode it up here to Sydney and here I am.

    I've done one trip on the F650 down to Calalla Bay (south of Nowra) in December and a couple of highway trips to Canberra but otherwise she's my daily ride to work.

    Keen to get into some group rides so I'll keep my eyes on these forums. I'm working on the 19th Feb so no Putty loop for me:( Next time...

    Thanks for reading dudes/dudettes, hope to ride with some of you soon!
