New older rider

  1. Hi All

    Ive been visiting netrider for a while now & found there to be some good info & great advice here so I joined. At 44 years of age I picked up my first bike last week (BMW R65) & had my first ride yesterday after getting my Ls 2 weeks ago & im still grinning. 1hr in a carpark & backstreets & I was into the 80k zone. Looking foward to my next ride & hope to see some of you out there on the roads of the mid north coast of NSW.

  6. Hi Dave... nice 1st bike, I had an R65 at once stage but it certainly wasn't my 1st bike :shock:
  7. Welcome to the forum Dave.

    Even though I am only month away from the end of my restrictions, I agree It really is about time the other States fell into line with LAMS.
  8. Its not overpowered, it light & easy to ride. And sounds great to.
