not exactly sure what to write here, all i know is today at work a guy asked if it was my GS500F parked outside and handed me a card with this particular forum web address on it when i replied that it infact was mine. anyways, names wade, new to the whole 'club' thing, only got my L's in dec 2008 and only just recently found the bike i had been hunting for for months,i had been wondering if a group such as this existed in canberra, and strangely enough, my mate told me about you guys on the weekend and then out of the blue i get handed a card with where to look. im looking for some riding buddies as i have 2 mates that also ride, unfortunatly we havent heard much from one guy in months, we think he is either; dead, being controlled by his woman and isnt allowed out of the house, got sick of being controlled by his woman and killed himself, or is too affraid to say that he in fact never liked riding and he only bought a bike to piss off his woman. regardless of which one is correct, i am now down one cruise buddy, which is my main concern. ideas/friendly advice anyone?
