Just got tired of 40 dedicated years of Ducatis (riding position hurts neck, wrists, bum, can't turn head to the right to see oncoming buses) and bought BMW 1200GS and expect to head out more frequently and further into the forests.
Ed is an old Army Reserve colleague and took me on my first NSW Riders ride on Sunday down through the Royal and onto Wollongong (shame about the massed ranks of sunny-side tourists doing 20-30kph and then vast numbers of uglies at St Geo-Steelers match at the Gong).
Various bikes since 1966 - Honda 90cc Sports, CB250, CB750, Triumph 120, Suzuki 185 dirt (in the Kurnell sandhills), Honda XL175 (which I rode from Perth to Darwin), Yamaha 650 twin, Ducati 1979 750SS and Ducati 1991 851 Strada (last two still owned).
Just recently completed 6000 km through Calif/Ariz/Nev/Utah on a rented BMW R1200RT with six-foot 16yo son on the back taking photographs, eating biscuits and waving at girls (somewhat topheavy as a result and kinda scary on the 60 miles of cliff-hugging goat track called the Pacific Coast Highway at Big Sur).
Dukes Lounge at 153 Avoca Street Randwick is a good run start spot, open early Sunday, owner is bike enthusiast (he stores the Suzi in the cafe).

Welcome Allan.. cheers

A wiseman once said :

Riding should be fun.
Riding within your limits makes it enjoyable.
Riding over the limits is challenging and risk yourself.
