hey All, just wanted to introduce my self to the forums as i just got my first bike. Grew up on a hobby farm and spent 10 years riding a posty bike from about the age of 5. Moved back to the big smoke (Melbourne) at age 15 owned two cars but i couldnt resist getting back on a bike. Just bought a 1988 Honda Spada (19,000KM's very straight never dropped paid $2,700) and all the threads on here about it was a major influence on my decision. Been reading some of the near misses threads and im keen to start riding with some more experienced riders as to not end up with a thread in there of my own. Im ok in traffic, driven a car since i was 18, so i like to think i can read car drivers well, treat them all like there out to kill me. but road bikes are new too me and therefor would love to go on some easy rides with some better riders. Had my bike for just over a week and im in love!
