Cant agree more with the previous comments.

 

Australia was made for riding motorbikes. (road & dirt :biggrin: )

 

If you are a newbie to riding, its not a bad idea to take an advance course once you get your license. HART rider training is a good one. The drivers over here can make it a very interesting experience out there on the road on a daily basis.

 

Go for it, you wont regret it (the wife might when you start going out for big weekend rides & weekends away exploring OZ)


 

 

:wink:

Yes I agree but if she is scared then I guess thats fair enough, but it is difficult to explain the sheer thrill of a bike. Never mind maybe she is on the planet longer than us eh:wink: Best wishes Susie x

I think its just that if anything happens to us both, what about the boys?

 

Also the one occasion she did jump on the back, we had ridden about 4k's and the back wheel locked up due to a rubber locking up in the rear brake. Nothing serious, as it was just a slowing down rather than an abrupt schreeching smoking stop, but since then she wont go near it.

 

a good excuse to drop the touring seat, and put the single seat on (looks a lot better anyway :biggrin: )

I had a bike in the UK and now own one in Canberra. There are some great roads in and around the Canberra area. I used to have an SV650 back in the UK and they are a great bike to have as a first bike. My wife and I used to go on the bike when we lived in the UK as it was our only mode of transport and we lived in London so i saw no point in having a car (plus it's cheaper). But now that we have a car and a bike she hasn't been on my bike here. She just saw the bike as a form of transport and not something to enjoy. I also have a seat cover on it and it looks good with it on, however I can always take it off if I was to take her or someone else on the back. My brother-in-law is coming down to Canberra for the Christmas period and I am sure he will want to have a ride on the back.

 

If anyone out there who happens to be in my area wants to go for a ride, or they want me to show them a few nice roads around here then just send me a PM and I will be more than happy to assist.

 

If anyone is interested I have some photos in my gallery of me and my big yellow VTR1000F Firestorm

 

Anyway, Ride hard, ride safe!
