Gday to all on the netrider network, this is my first post after joining this week. I have been cruising the forums for about 6 months, since I decided to get back into riding after a 30 odd year break!!. Netrider has been a great resource to me getting back on the bike, getting up to date with technique , issues and tech stuff. I figured I should pay my dues and sign on, so here I am. My name is Greg and I have the privilege of living in the city of Dubbo in western NSW, a not nearly fit 51 year old who has unloaded 2/3 of our kids. In Feb I bit the bullet and bought a Zook GS500f from my local dealer, after extensive research through the forums and elsewhere. My logic being that I wanted the extra grunt and upright riding position of the GS and that it would serve me through my Ls and pillion prohibited period and maybe , just maybe get mother interested in a bit of touring later on.Loving the sensation of riding once more and loving the GS. Thanks to all the willing contributors to the forums who inform those who seek some guidance.
