  1. Hi All,
    I am a long time rider (since I was 16 - 41 years now) but new to this forum. My latest bike is a KLR 650 that I am setting up as a commuter. I like the high riding position and the quick response down low.
    Am new to the ACT so will be looking for a decent shop to get tyres etc. Any ideas?

  2. Hey there, welcome to NR. While I can't say 100% for-sure kinda thing, the Canberra Motorcycle Centre or Joe's Motorcycles would probably be your best places to go - they're the only bike shops in Canberra as far as I know. Both are in Fyshwick. Joe's is having a sale this coming weekend too, so you should definitely check them out anyway.

    If you haven't yet, I recommend checking out CanberraRiders too, as it's our local riding forum. Many people are members of both CR and NR. You'll know about many more events that way. Hope that's a little bit of a help.
