    Hello to Everyone!
    New member to the forum and new to ACT from QLD. (I have absolutlely no interest in football of any kind - unless sport involves an engine im just not interested.)
    Brief run down - Been riding for around 8 years. Sport touring mainly. Just venturing into track days and drag racing when money and time allow. Ride sport tourers and adventure tourers on the road.
    Like the cafe racer scene too but they are a little small for my 6ft 4inch frame.
    I leave my need for rapid riding to track days so road trips are legal limits only... no wheelies or other BS on public roads. Not a fan of FB hence why I joined here. I love mechanicials of anything that has tyres and an internal combustion engine. Anyways looking to explore the areas surrounding the ACT and doing an alpine ride soon before it gets too cold and or dangerous.
    Cheers!!

    Despite the weather, Canberra is a good spot for adventure and sport bikes.

    Last weekend, I rode my Kawasaki KLR650 to the Alpine Motorcycle Rally at Yarrangobilly, NSW.

    Just up the road at Wakefield Park, Goulburn, there are frequent track days.

    Shame, I really dislike FB. It can be very obtrusive.
