    Hello everyone,
    I just joined and the site looks great. I ride a KLR 650 and a Ninja 250R. I used to ride many years ago until my bikes were stolen, my son recently bought a bike ( Ninja 250R), I had a ride and that was that. Two bikes later and now I have 4 bikes in the garage ( my son has two ). I am 53 and should know better. Anyway, I use the Ninja during the week for work ( its a blast around town), but the weekends are for the KLR650 and Suziki DR ( thats my sons). We head off into the hills, one day we dream of going around Australia ( gotta do that before I get to old!)......

    Yeah should have been a kwaka.... :cool

    Welcome, age doesn't mean that we can't let our hair down (if there's any left) from time to time. I'm a few years older than you and recently bought a GPX750R and soon enough that wasn't fast enough so upgraded to a ZX9R. Having a ball and even went on a ride with these guys recently (last ride before winter) and thoroughly enjoyed the day. They are great bunch and really make noobs welcome...

    A silver haired friend of mine got pulled over by a copper for doing a massive wheelie down the main street in St. Kilda. The copper was pretty pissed, Uncle Bren took off his helmet and the copper said "mate, at your age you should know better", Uncle Bren goes "Sorry Officer, didn't know there was an age limit".

    Copper pissed himself and let him off with a warning!

    Being grey can have it's advantages I sppose :haha

    Welcome aboard Henry :up
