Hi all, just joined this community as I'm getting my first motorbike in the new year. I'm a 23 yr old IT Consultant working in Melbourne. I've been a bit of a thrillseeker for a while now and this is the natural progression for me. Had a bit of an incident where my QANTAS flight coming back from Singapore in October (QF72) took a nose dive. I basically decided that having made it through that ordeal, there was no point waiting to get a bike any further as I'd already put it off for 5 years. I've put my deposit down on a 09 Kawasaki Ninja 250R from Peter Stevens in Melbourne City. Will be picking it up in mid to late January after I get my license in early January From what I've seen here, this is a strong community with a great wealth of knowledge! I'm looking forward to more interesting reading and conversations and hopefully some enjoyable meetups and rides - particularly the tuesday learners group Thanks for reading!
