Hi, Long time stalker, first time topic-opener... I live in Sydney near Manly and have been riding since around March. I have a sachs kn150... it's a fine machine, with a fine piece of engineering on the back in the form of a glistening red milkcrate which doubles as protective, hi-vis clothing. Mainly commute when i'm tired from the pushbike or sometimes go out with my mum and her harley... Yup. My mum rides a 1450 softtail. I ride a 150 chinese... thing, i guess. :? Love riding and the freedom it gives me! Any excuse is a good one. Just interested to know, how many 17/18 year olds are out there that ride their bikes to school?
