I figure I should do an intro for myself. I'm from NSW and in my early thirties, just starting out with road after riding dirt since my early teens. Initially I rode motocross with some bush work thrown in, but more enduro style now (I ride a 300 2S, I wouldn't want to try it around an MX track). I haven't had a lot of time for the dirt bike lately. I'm stuck on P's for 18 months despite being (well) over 25..... including red P's for the next 6 months. Unfortunately I didn't bother going to P's straight away when I got my L's, but instead waited until the last minute. I figured it didn't matter much on a dirt bike, just riding to/from fuel stations and from cars to start points type thing.... little did I know I would have a change of heart about road riding now. Tomorrow I should take delivery of an MT-07. I test rode one on christmas eve which had a pipe on it and found it a decent enough machine for the money. It's not a scary bike, but then I only did 5km in traffic. So I couldn't really push very hard. Anyway I like the look of it (the panels are carbon wrapped) and it's about as much bike as you can get in the LAMS system. I'm sure I will get a lot of enjoyment from it. The dealer wanted 2k for a pipe, so I will be taking a standard one (other than the wrap, rim tape and tail tidy) and will source a pipe and what not myself. I came on here to ask about gear, but I will start another thread on that, as I know most tend to only hit newbie threads if they are the type to say Hi/Welcome.
