Gday guys and gals...hope you don't mind me jumping on board. I'm on the wrong side of 50 (but honestly I don't look THAT old - yeah I know this is not RSVP), but new to bikes. Got my L's and first bike, actually a scooter, about 3 months ago, then four weeks later got a Suzuki GN250 and then two weeks ago bought a GS500, which I dare say will be the last bike I buy, for at least a while. It was with some trepidation (and a bit of flak from the missus) that I took to the streets on a motorbike. Got to say I love riding the bike, and now hate getting in a car. Ride everyday to work Dulwich Hill to St Leonards. Hopefully will soon start doing some longer rides. Lots for me to learn,and am sure this place will help with my learning. Cheers.
