Finally hit the submit, I've been browsing posts for awhile and then more posts once I'd made my choice of which roadbike I'd like and then found it and I've done more reading... and now that it's less than 36hrs before I head south to the border to pick up my very own ER6n. Great forum and I really enjoy the chuckles it brings and private smiles to myself when I come across some of the comments... well done! But more valuable is the knowledge base and the mass of riders that share it. Look forward to doing some group rides too and meeting other riders. My partner has a z750 which is why I'm about to get my own .. you see after I added the unrestricted R to my licence.. I picked up the early hints that he doesn't really want to share it... even thou that was the Deal at the time of his purchase! He's a seasoned dirtbiker WR450 and I'm a country girl at heart trail rider and have a XT in my garage too. I used to ride my dads Kwaka roadbike in my teenhood before I even thought about licences and loved the electric start. Now 25 years later and I have the Licence to Enjoy! Thats my Intro. Will add my bit to the "how many k's did you ride on the first day..." after I head back up to Sydney on Wednesday afternoon. (with photos) Thanks again for sharing.
