    Hi guys,

    I was a more active member of the group a few years ago, however work took me away. Well you lucky people, I'm back and on a different bike. I now ride an ex AFP FJR1300. Why I hear some of you ask, well it all comes down to money and when a non police bike with similar K's and year model is about $5k more, well it is daft not to. Yes there isn't a pillion seat, but I see that as a bonus as the wife can't get on the back with me (she didn't like going on the back anyway). There is loads of storage on it allowing me to do stuff I couldn't on my od VTR1000. Don't get me wrong, I love the VTR and still miss it, but this was my head rather than my heart that made the purchase.

    Where have I been? Well I lived up in Dubbo for the last couple of years chasing a career out here. Sadly due to health reasons, I had to give up on that dream, however the diagnosis may have saved my life. I now have 3 rugrats, which due to my family commitments stops me riding as much as I would like. I do however make a point of attending the Wall to Wall ride each year, and from the sounds of things, this year's ride is going to be a 4 day affair.

    I will attempt to use this forum more now I am heading back to struggle town and get out on the road for a number of rides as well as the odd afternoon at coffee (Although I maybe the only pom in the world who doesn't drink tea or coffee).

    See you all soon

    Nik
