G'day all. New rider in a small backwater town called Sydney here, some of you may have heard of it. Sitting on my recently acquired motorcycle L(unatic) plates at the moment while I've been browsing all the toy-store websites (bikesales, gumtree, etc.). Not quite sure about what bike to get first up, something cheap to buy and run that I won't get bored riding would be nice. Once I get a bike I'll be attending the homebush meets on Saturdays as soon as I'm reasonably confident I won't road test my safety gear as soon as I get to Parramatta Rd. Until then any advice/suggestions/comments you have I'll take under advisement, and I'll be lurking all over the forum to get a sense of the place. Currently I'm armed with; Licence, helmet and gloves. Looking to acquire; Motorcycle Goodness. Currently reading about/trying to figure out; - Decent boots you don't want to change as soon as you get off the bike - Decent all round jacket which is comfortable and fairly all-weather, armoured. - Decent riding pants, I was going to order some RHOK as they seem well reputed on here but they're out of stock at the moment apparently.
