  1. Hi all,

    I'm Mitch, 21 years old and living just outside of Newcastle in The Hill. I've recently acquired my license and I'm loving it, the only downsides so far being that I still haven't bought wet weather gear, and the severe lack of power that a postie bike offers. However, we all had to start somewhere.

    I'm hoping to get something a little quicker and well, more appealing visually before I get my P's so I don't have to do it again on a manual bike.
    (Damn you centrifugal clutch!)

    Anyway, I'll leave it at that before I start rambling on too much.
  2. Please ramble on, it's a well-used practice on Netrider :LOL:

    So, it's a long time since I lived in Boolaroo/Karuah/Denman, and the Valley, where is 'The Hill'???
  3. The Hill is basically that massive hill behind Darby Street heading towards The Junction, not a bad little place, alot of really upper market houses, though i'm in apartments atm :>
  4. ah, yes, I know that area.

    When you are mounted on a more appropriate steed, you should check out the Putty Road, it's a nice piece of riding road.
  5. heh, woot @ postie bike! :moped:
