  1. Hi guys, I've been lurking this forum for a while and it has some awesome stuff on it. I moved to Sydney from NZ a couple of months back and am getting used to how quick things are going here.

    I started riding when I was 16 on a Yamaha FZR250RR which I loved very much, and then I moved on to a 1998 CB400. Since moving out of home for uni I haven't ridden for the past 5 years and have been itching to get back into it.

    I've picked up most of my gear (helmet, pants, gloves, jacket) and am just waiting to pounce on a bike that comes my way. Since I haven't ridden for a while, I have my doubts on my skills so will try to get on a friendlier non sports 500/600cc bike.

    Looking forward to picking one up and joining a group ride some time :D
  2. Welcome to Netrider, and New Zealand West :LOL:
  3. welcome to NR, homebush is gathering place for prac sessions, good place to meet n greet :)
  4. Thanks for that Goddie, I'm just out in Parramatta, so will have to look further into it. Hope it's alright if I don't turn up on a bike, but that should all change soon!
  5. I am in melb and we encourage all to turn up, bike or no bike, I am sure the Sydney crew will welcome you [might hear a kiwi accent amongst them lol]
  6. Hey welcome, go a 600cc
