  1. Hi All,

    I am new to this, although I have been riding for about 50 years and owned about 50 bikes. Current bike is a new R1200GS. Located in Tas

  2. Hi,

    Welcome, sounds like you will have a lot to share with all of that experience.

    Cheers Jeremy
  3. Welcome to NR. (y)

    As above. I plan to ride around Tas one of these days. Lovely place. :)

    What sort of bikes have you owned in the past? I mean the ones that you wouldn't mind buying again.
  4. welcome to NR
  5. Welcome Dave, it may be unsafe to say that you live in that little bit of motorcycle heaven Tassie. You will have hoards of Netriders descending on you while on tour. ;)
  6. Meh,you're old and trash a bike every year.
    You already sound like a Netrider.
  7. Hey thanks for all the welcomes. The most bikes Iv'e had have been Yamaha 11 BMW, 10, Honda 10, Suzuki, 8 and others in few numbers. All been good in their own way, mostly road bikes, a few trail/adventure. Ususally have 2 or three at a time but now only one.

    The most recent before the current GS was a K1600GT, too big too fat, too fast (if that is possible)

    Tassie is good but you run out of roads too quickly and so look forward to the mainland trip every year.
  8. Hi! welcome here!enjoy!
