Yamaha 650 Rider from Port Macquarie

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by Johno1967, Aug 24, 2016.

  1. Hey all, just joined. Been riding for just over a year now, done 22000km and really enjoying it. Was living in Victoria when I first acquired my bike, have done the Great Ocean Road, Mt Buller, Mt Buffalo as well as many other rides: the Merton gap is a good one too. Moved to Port in February, grew up in the area so was a good homecoming. Those of you familiar with the area will know about the Gingers Creek run up the Oxley, have done that a few times along with various other rides. Only had one minor off, just a few marks on the bike and a scuffed glove was all. Have a Facebook group called Port Macquarie Cruiser Riders as well. Keep the shiny side up everyone!
