The weather held out for me, and I picked up the CB500F this morning from Dandenong and rode it home. First thoughts - not as bad as I was expecting. 80km/h along the Hwy felt comfortable, but I certainly have a lot of practice to do and skills to develop. I had the contour camera on, and will upload a video of my first 10 minutes on the bike for all to see, be bored by, and critique. Thanks for all the guidance and help to get this far. See you on the road!
