Hello all, my name is Marcus and I am in Melbourne. 17 years ago I was going to sit my bike test, but was talked out of it by the parents who promised to help with the purchase of my first car if I didn't do it. Now after being a kept man and stay at home dad for 7 years, I think I am having my midlife crisis. Now most buy a hairdressers car and they get over it, but I have been into modifying cars since I could. I currently drive a 300rwkw XR6 Turbo, so buying a car that could give me thrills was going to be a very expensive option. So I decided that before my 33rd birthday, I would finally get my licence. 3 weeks after making that decision, I had my l's! I bought a 1992 GSF250 Bandit, and although it has the unbridaled power of a marshmellow, I have never had so much fun or enjoyed being on the road so much, ever, period! It's like joining a club that has instant recognition. Just about all riders I see on the road give a nod, and conversations at lights, with total strangers is great! I am busting to get my open licence so I can finally get my dream bike, a Benelli cafe racer! Heres a pic of the pride and joy. Since buying it, I have added an Eagle screens tinted screen and oxford hotgrips.
