  1. Hi everyone,

    I have read thousands of posts from many forums but this is my first time posting in an Australia bike forum.
    I have lived (and ridden bikes) in the Philippines, China and Vietnam. Now I'm home so I decided to buy a reasonably priced standard bike.
    The MT-09 had everything I was looking for and now with over 5000km I'm really impressed by the bike.
    I have changed the rear sprocket to one with 43 teeth and now the engine is not working so hard at 110kph.
    I have put some crash knobs and engine case covers on the bike just in case. I won't change the exhaust because the bike has more engine than I can use and the suspension, while soft, is ok for my purposes.
    I have installed a rad guard, lowered the instruments (using an alloy bracket) and installed a few other farckles.
    I've never done a group ride but I look forward to going on my first one this year.

    Anyway, hello and thanks for letting me join ;)
