New rider from Newcastle

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by Sparrow40k, May 14, 2016.

  1. Hey everyone! I'm a new rider from Newcastle, NSW. Although despite honestly saying I'm not a very experience rider, I have own (in order):
    • 2010 Kymco Pulsar 125 // This bike however wasn't mine owned and was borrowed from a friend the whole time
    • 1989 Honda CBR250R MC19
    • 1999 Kawasaki GPX250R (EX250F)
    • 2012 Hyosung GT650R EFI // My current motorcycle
    So basically in short about me; I've just had none stop issues and complications with any motorcycle I've owned but that's been because as everyone knows "You get what you pay for". I paid $1000 for the Honda with rego and then $500 for the Kawasaki without rego, so they were both absolute trash and I've just never been able to actually ride.
    However, recently my grandma decided that these trash bikes I buy just so I can get to university is ridiculous and gave me enough money to buy something decent and I know I am going to get a lot of shit for this but I decided to get a Hyosung. I've only owned it for a short time now and absolutely love it!
