  1. Hellllooo NR

    Thought id make an intro as ive been lurking around for a bit posting here and there but never actually introducing myself, Names Ed, yes im on my L's and loving it. I have been frothing over getting a motorbike since I was about 10, riding offroad for a bit... but opted for the "your young, dumb and reckless" excuse to delay getting a motorbike for road use till I got a little bit more mature haahaha. Based in western syd and love getting out for a ride out on some twisties (not to hoon but to enjoy the ride)

    heres the bike,
    2014 Husquvarna FE450 with optional supermoto conversion, still have the dirt wheels/tyres for when Im craving mud cakes. Get my FMF pipe soon, just waiting for Northside to get back to me about whats happening with it.

    Look forward to hopefully tagging along to some NR rides if and when i find a free moment from school :(

    P.s personal achievement, practicing my road craft and understanding how the bike reacts to "on road" riding while up at springwood road on a nice sunny day i managed to get rid of my chicken strips without even realizing! :wacky:
