Newbie to bikes, loving it

  1. Hi. I've only been riding for around 3 years, but loving it. I'm not into the tinkering with bikes etc, but I struggle to get into the car to drive anywhere since I started riding...I think I've driven to work 2 or 3 times in the last 12 months. Live in Canberra. Am looking at upgrading my bike in the next few months, my 50th birthday present.

  4. Welcome and glad you're enjoying your mid life crisis (y)
    What upgrade are you considering, as you've probably been told - aren't you getting a bit old to be riding a bike :wideyed::wideyed::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
  5. welcome aboard :)

  7. Welcome and nice to hear you have the riding bug.

    What are you looking to upgrade to? I ask as the Gladius would be pretty competent as commuting bike. Are you looking just for something different or have your needs/desires changed?
  8. welcome to Netrider obl :)
