  1. Hi all, just thought I would say this has been a great forum to learn a lot about motorbikes! Just passed my L's the other week and bought a new VTR250 as they were on sale $7995 ride away (with a free teknic jacket!)

    Sweet, pick my bike up this friday looking forward to meeting up on the tuesday and thursday rides as I live in St kilda. :cool:

    See you around

    Liam

  8. Thanks for all your support guys, I bought a red VTR as they did'nt have any other colours left. Besides, i quite like the red and black combo. I was told it was one of the last two available new. Honda have stopped making them aparently.

    Cool, looking forward to catching up for a ride sometime soon!

  16. Well, I picked up my bike tonight, I am glad it did not rain and the roads were dry! Must say I am very happy with my bike! Was a smooth ride home too. I was a little nervous in traffic on a friday afternoon but it was all good.

    Here are some pics. Note only 3km's on the clock when I took delivery :)

    The only thing I would like to do is move the foot controls around a little if I can as I am quite tall and it feels a little out of place. Other than that I have no regrets buying a brand new bike :cool:
