  1. Hi,

    Not exactly a new rider. But an older guy that let his licence lapse when moving from Qld to Vic in the middle eighties. Didn't have a bike then and thought I'd never ride again.

    I was very wrong. Took up my L's last March and bought a 2012 Hyosung GT250R. Been hooked again since. Very quickly grew out of that bike and have now got a new Suzuki GSX650F. And loving every minute I spend on it.

    The bike has been through its first 1000k service. The rate I'm going it won't be long until its next one.

    I think (from what i see on the net) I'm like all the gsx650f owners. Ditch the OEM muffler. I've got a new Delkevic in the post now. Looking forward to seeing how that sounds.

    Looking forward to reading through posts in this forum and maybe asking the odd question now and again.

  10. And I betcha you must be thinking 'why did I ever let my license lapse' OR 'why did I stay away for so long'
