G'day everyone, I'm Dave, based in Newcastle, NSW. 30yo male with a bit of spare time for getting out on the bike at the moment. Fairly new to bikes, still learning the ropes. Started riding about 10 months ago when I purchased a stock standard 2008 Ninja 250R road bike and currently on my red P's (for another 4 months). Loving the bike so far. Joined a local forum but not much activity there so hoping to get involved here as well. Have done a few ride days with mates (Mangrove Mountain, Buckett's Way, Old Pac. Hwy etc) but looking to get out more now that summer is here. So far my favourite ride has been Stroud -> Dungog -> Gresford. Awesome bends for a light-weight sports bike but a not the smoothest road. Definitely going back there some day soon. Thinking I'll probably get a proper sports-touring bike once I'm fully licensed... Cheers.
