Re:


Not sure about the Harley Alan, but am still deciding if I am "cruiser" rider or not, as am leaning "heavily" towards sports bikes or at least a mix cruiser/sport like my GS500F, but maybe with a bit more power like a GSX-R 750.

I jumped into my friend's Yamaha V-Star (cruiser) and although the ride felt very nice, I reckon it is far too bulky for my liking, but who knows maybe with age the preferences will have to change emoticon

@ Tony: Yeah mate, I have never seen or exprienced a driving/riding test that detailed, but I guess they are trying to educate the riders as much as possible which is fair enough. The good thing is that all tests are now over and in 12 months time I just have to turn-up to the RTA to have my license changed to full.

Re: Another mid-life crisis adventure


Hi Jalal,

Just want to start by thanking you for dropping the front strut brace to me the other day, you're a champ!

Good news on the bike mate. I have a few bikes at home but my pride and joy is a GSXR 600. If you enjoy riding and like the moto GP i will keep you updated on a Phillip Island trip in October where my mates and I ride and camp at the track. We might even organise some willing xtrail drivers as support cars to carry some gear and also camp at the track with us.

Let me know if you're keen

Cheers

Max

Re: Another mid-life crisis adventure


So I finally found the courage to ride to work the other [sign in to see URL] in PEAK Traffic!

I enjoyed the ride, but for heavens sake, I didn't feel privileged of being on a bike compared to those drivers. I was still getting stuck in traffic and behind cars LOL emoticon

I think I was the only "law abiding" rider on the road and every single bike rider was screaming past me on the emergency lane.

It took me forever to get to work, but parking in the city was NOT a challenge for my Suzuki. Basically spot a bunch of bikes parked anywhere in the city and squeeze yourself between them LOL emoticon

Try doing that in a car in the city emoticon

The ride home was MUCH more relaxing and scenic via Brighton Le Sands emoticon

Rode a bike into the city for six years straight Jalal and it was never fun but yes I was one of those who utilised all lanes, emergency/ breakdown lanes, medium strips and even footpaths to get past the traffic! You get used to it but you always wish you had 10 sets of eyes!

Re:


Hi Jalal.
I just found this thread, after not being in here for ages.
Great news about you getting your bike licence.
Congratulations.
Remember;
"Only a motorcyclist knows why a dog loves having it's head out the window."
I have had bikes on & off for years, still have mine downstairs,
Even though I haven't ridden it since getting hurt @ work nearly 4 ears ago.

If you are thinking about a cruiser type bike, can I suggest having a look at the "Hyosung Aquila"
They have a bit of get up & go, & aren't too heavy or bulky.
A good spot to look is....
[sign in to see URL]

2011 HYOSUNG GV650 Aquila Classic Deluxe$6,990*
that is on there with all the bells & whistles

Enjoy the riding.

Re:


Hey John, nice to hear from you after a long time off the forum.

Funny that you make a post in this thread, as I was just getting ready to put my bike gear on and head out seeing that it is a nice and sunny day outside emoticon

I don't think I will considering cruiers at this stage, as I have already made-up my mind and will be getting one of the 3 supersport bikes in March next year (Yamaha R1 or Kawasaki ZX6R or 10R or Honda 1000RR Fireblade) and they'll be around the 2009 year model with low kms hopefully.

This should last me for another 8-10 years or so which is when I will consider a more comfy cruiser bike.....emoticon
