New rider on the roads

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' at netrider.net.au started by JR001, Sep 15, 2007.

  1. Hello everyone,
    found this site a few weeks ago and gotta say: It's Great
    After 25 years of abstinence I'm back on the roads and ... it's beautiful :grin: .
    I am one of the old bones (nearly 50), living rural right beetween Brissie and the Gold Coast who got that feeling again and said to myself and my missus : Now or never - so WE bought MY Vulcan 900 Classic. NO regrets
    It needed a bit of practice again but now it needs an operation to get the grin out of my face !!

    I hope we catch up one day for a ride...[/img]
  2. Welcome to NR.. I know you will enjoy your cruiser.. :grin:
  3. i don't drop into this forum much but noticed your post and wanted to say hello. great to have some older riders 'round. when i first started here at NR there was a pretty healthy age spread that allowed for some great intergenerational discussions. these days it seems to veer towards Gen Y and much as i lov'em to pieces of course, it's great to have some baby boomers in the mix. so welcome aboard, congrats on your new ride and enjoy the journey :wink:
  4. Welcome,


    I love it :wink:
  5. Welcome to NR, mate. I'm just outside Beauy myself, so give me a holler if you want to ride sometime. I'm always keen.
  7. Hi JR, welcome to the forum. Good luck with the new beast! :)
  8. Always good to see another QLD'er!

    Welcome :)
