New rider from Brisbane

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by djc926, Dec 18, 2011.

  1. Hi all,

    I am a new rider from Brisbane (Southside).
    A combination of factors made me get a bike. Difficulty and cost of car parking in Brisbane CBD, rising fuel price, ridiculous rego and insurance costs and most importantly because I wanted have some FUN.
    I did my first day of QRide with Ridesmart a few days ago and I'm going back to do my second day tomorrow, so hopefully I should have a licence by the end of tomorrow.
    I have already bought a bike, a 2010 Kawasaki Ninja 250R Special Edition.
    Now I just need to order my gears!
    Exciting times indeed!
  2. Indeedly, welcome to riding, and to the best forum on the 'Net.....
  3. Howdyhowdyhowdy!
  4. Hey another 250 ninja owner in brisbane, if your ever keen for a cruise somewhere let us know!
  5. Hello djc926 - nice to meet you. Welcome to NR, and the two wheeled life.

    Some of the Brisweigens are going out on Saturday.
  6. Hi, welcome to NR and motorbikes. Hope you're liking your bike.

    Have you worked out how much you're saving on parking each month yet?

    I work at South Brisbane and I figured I'd only have to save 15 months of parking to pay for my bike.
  7. thanks for the warm welcome.
    I've been flat out with work since the new year but thoroughly enjoying the bike. wanting a little more power already. lol
    I don't regularly commute to work and won't be until the tail bags I ordered arrive.
