  1. Hey thought I might drop in and say hi picked up my new bike today super happy 2015 hyosung gv650 classic.
    Honestly I don't have allot of riding experience maybe 8 hours on a Honda cb125 for my Qride and now about 150km on my brand new 650 but can now get some experience.
    Would really like to find some people to ride with to help out with advice and stuff specially in high traffic areas as currently I'm not very confident but I'm sure that will change with continued riding.

  2. welcome aboard 3lud133lud13 :] if you check threads for rides and or training sessions in your area im sure you will get what you need

  4. Welcome, mate my best advice to start getting your skills up, is to go through and practice all the basics on your new bike, get a feel of what your cruiser handles like stopping, emergency stops, slow riding. Riding in general getting you bum on seat and racking up some km, solo or with good riders. Happy riding stay safe.
