Hi everyone - I am new here, initially with the idea to asking for advice and then depending on that advice you provide you may see me on here a bit more often. A bit about me first - I am a 41 yr old male who lives in Canberra with my partner and 3 kids (14, 3, 3). I am a keen dirt bike rider and a novice scuba diver. I am 183 cm and about 100 kg. The reason for my post is because I am considering selling the dirt bike and moving to road bikes. I have ridden dirt bikes since my early 20s and would consider myself as a slightly above average rider. These days with a young family i am finding myself with less time to take a day out to go riding as well as having less fitness to enjoy a day out riding. I have always had some reservations about road bikes which has kept me away from them primarily because of the risks of other vehicles on the road. The last time I rode a road bike was back in 2006 and it was a VFR750 which I did enjoy. My other concern is that despite having ridden for many years, taking to a road bike will be like starting all over again.
