Hi. Myself and SWMBO are getting into biking.........I said I wanted to, never thought she'd want to, but then one look at the bikes and she insisted. Double the cost but hopefully four times the fun. Course booked, bikes sourced plus the all important safety gear. Can't wait. Both in our late forties so old farts to be kicking off this activity. We are good listeners and good learners. Three years restriction in Vic, which won't bother us. Looking at CBR500R's so that will be plenty for me anyway. It's says "newbie" ........you better believe it!
