Hi guys, I've recently joined up to help me learn a bit more about riding in general.. I've been wanting to get my permit for years now and have never had the spare $$ aside for a decent machine but now I'm working for myself, things are looking up for a change. Basically I want to learn to be a safe rider and just get out and enjoy Tassie from a rider's point of view. I have no friends that ride so once I get myself sorted I'd definitely be keen to meet up with some fellow Tassie riders and enjoy some good company out on the road. My main issue is I am unsure what bike will be best for me. I've always been a big Ducati fan but finding anything LAMS approved down here is a big ask so I'm thinking I'll have to buy from the mainland. I'm after some people's opinions on the 620ie Monster and the 600SS - or anything that would suit someone like me (190cm 110kg) Anyway I'll be sure to pop up about the place asking stupid questions - so please don't be too harsh on me! Cheers Marcus Hobart, TAS.
