Hi Netriders, I have been reading the forum for a while, very interesting and informative. I got my L's about a month ago and picked my new bike up yesterday. I went with a Honda VT250 Spada after reading the many threads on them on this forum. As you can see from my profile I live on the Central Coast and my first ride from where I picked up the bike in Sydney took me via the 'Old Road'. Not too bad for my first ride on a motorcycle. Anyway great forum and I look forward to meeting up with some of you on group rides.
