G'day, Hello to everyone on Netrider. Iam a new rider in as much as I haven't ' straddled the saddle' in a number of years. I now ride a DR650SE and have certainly discovered that motorcycle riding is a perishable skill. If you don't use it you definetly loose it. I had in the late 60's through to the 80's extensive riding experience both on and off road, but was put out of action for a long time. Anyway, I am back in the saddle and gingerly edging my way along once more. I can't recapture the glory days of yore but am not letting the creeping up of age stop me from enjoying a great pastime.
