  1. Hi everyone,

    I have been lurking these forums a while, and thought that I should introduce myself.

    I'm 23, Live and work in Wollongong, and and about to become a fellow motorbike rider! :grin:

    I have my motorbike L's, my riding gear (Helmet, Jacket, Gloves, Boots, Kevlar Jeans), all I need to do now is find a bike to buy!

    I'm having a bit of trouble due to not knowing much technically about bikes, and not having any mates who ride to help me look, I want to avoid buying a lemon :)

    So anyway, hello everyone, and hopefully you will see me on the road soon :p
  2. If you need a hand with the shopping, sok, I'm available :wink:

  3. welcome to netrider
  4. Congrats on th Ls, take Hornet up on his offer i've heard he's OK :LOL:
    Seriously though it cant hurt to have a second opinion and an experienced rider with you.
  5. Don't take Paul, you'll end up with a Hornet! :biker:
    Seriously, Paul knows a little bit about bikes!

    Regards, Andrew.
  6. Hiya sok and congrats on getting your L's!
