I ran into Ed again yesterday and he suggested I get on here
I used this intro to another forum.....
My name is Max and I am a motorcyclist (and a forum junkie it seems)

Although I haven't ridden today, I admit freely to y'all that I am powerless over my addiction and have a history of dependence on motorcycles in their many forms (except for HD's; I mean the bikes that have evolved since 1967) spanning over 40 years which includes some long periods of abstinence but as is the case for many, I keep coming back.

After a significant milestone in my life a few years back I thought that with some years behind me,some level of maturity, a licence with full points and family responsibilities, I could again face my demons but do it differently and control it. I got a dirtbike to ride on the week ends. That was fine, I had fun, met lots of people on great rides, built up some forgotten skills, I was doing OK - for a while.
I started to think about getting some 'tard wheels for the dirt bike and go for a spin on the roads again, then looked at some 'tards in bike shops and on the net "just like a dirt bike for the road" I told myself "they dont go fast!" - I even sat my 40 something, missus on the back of an LC4 and asked her "how does it feel honey?"
I knew I was kidding myself, I had to get a roadie again. By some intervention from the higher power, a small amount of sanity prevailed and I did not buy a sports bike, opting fo a naked. In the last couple of years have been riding the OPH and Putty rd on my own but have increasingly found myself stalking , searching for a rider ahead to hunt down.

Looking for therapy, I think have to run with a pack for a while to re align my predatory traits and socialise into the roadie scene and basically settle my desires. Thats why I'm here

Hope to pick up a ride with yous sometime soon

FYI: The name cornerman is not meant to be a brag about my ability to succesfully navigate non-straight sections. The idea came from the corner marking system

Oh yeah the bike: I have a CB1300 it carries 2 middle aged riders comfotably and looks pretty good.

I like the retro styling and now I have dispensed with the monster muffler, it sounds good too

Hi Max


Miserable day yesterday wasn't it. We continued up to wisemans Ferry and unfortunately, one of our riders came down along the Wisemans Ferry Road. He was OK and the bike was ride-able. Just don't need stuff like that.

Hope you can join us next Sunday, weather permitting, otherwise there is a HRCA ride on the 15th March.

Catch up again soon.


P.S. Your 'story' is not unlike mine. At my age, I wanted some 'me' time and that's just what I am doing.

Age criteria for CTP thru Monaland Insurance is now 30 years. Enquire at www.monaland.com.au
