  1. Hey guys, just wanted to post and say hi. I've just moved with the wife from London 6 weeks ago and just picked up a 2011 Kawasaki ZX6R. It's been 5 years since My last bike and can't wait to get out and meet like minded people.

  5. Welcome to NR and Brissy. I hope the weather here doesn't put you off riding too much. There's a few of us up here always out riding but we're terrible organizers.

  6. Where abouts in Brissy are you?
  7. Not going to lie, it's feeling a little warm already. Not sure I'm going to get much use out of my one or two piece leathers. I think it's time to go shopping for draggin jeans and venter textile jackets :)

  8. Ha, leathers can get away with for 3 months of year - rest of time it's mesh and ice vests. Get out now while the weather is perfect cause soon it'll be stinking

  14. I'm in the west (Indooroopilly Area)
  15. ah ha, guess Nebo, Glorious etc are your normal routes. I usually only go up there on the weekends as am on south and don't feel like humping it thru the city on week days. I usually go down around GC hinterland or west and then where ever. Let us know if you're looking for someone to ride with as am usually going out and about one way or another

  16. Welcome GordyBeeGordyBee from a fellow ex-pat. :) I picked a much more English climate though... well, for six months of the year. ;) First time you adopt ATGATT in 42 degrees, drop me a hi-5 :)
