  1. Hi Guys,

    I have been riding a scooter for commuting the last 2 years. I have now upgraded to a Honda CB500FA, and I love it. It is so different to the scooter and I have got so much to learn. I am looking forward to heading to the learner sessions and rides and meeting new people. I did a ride down to Red Hill on the weekend with a mate who rides a ninja 600. I had the best time and looking forward to doing many more trips.


  2. Welcome.

    Good choice with the CB500F, I've got the same model too.

    I'll be down at Elwood this coming Sat and heading over to the spanner day too.
