Hey all, After holding on to a learners permit for a good 4 years, and moving back to a city job after working FIFO, I'm biting the bullet and moving forward with my license. Exam is booked and bike bought - a 2008 V-Star 650 Classic. I'm here to lurk and learn from the large number of clearly experienced riders that inhabit these forums. Hopefully, one day, I can do something to contribute back. I'm currently designing a bike computer based on raspberry PI to provide GPS, GPS tracking, tacho (for those bikes lacking them), and other useful features. Cheers all!
