Hey all, thought I'd say g'day!

I'm a member of a few forums, but it never hurts to find a few more and get to know some folk. I'm fairly new to riding, tried it on and off for a few years but for many reasons never really got into it, which changed in November 2012 when I bought a little Postie for commuting which I absolutely loved.

She's parked in the garage, but I've not so long ago bought an old Virago 1100, which suits me to a t! I haven't been riding too much with the crappy weather out here, but I'm looking forward to getting some miles under my belt soon!

Welcome Josh, you'd be finding it cold at Orange lately.

You will find a lot of information from the folk here, so don't be afraid to ask questions.

Re being new to riding, there is a great link at the Motorcycle Council of NSW site (we are a member club of the MCC of NSW) called 'Rider risk Videos'. Here is the link:

http://www.mccofnsw.org.au/a/332.html

Another bonus from being a MCC of NSW member club is having access to discounted CTP through Monaland Insurance provided you are over 30. Check the Monaland site @:

https://www.monaland.com.au/nswmcc.html

Stay safe.

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

Welcome Josh! I used to live and work in Orange... man, I don't miss those cold, frosty mornings! Hope to see you and the Virago out and about when things warm up (a ride to Mount Panorama is drafted for mid-Oct).

JD

Welcome Josh, we'll be out at Oconnell Pub for lunch at the long weekend in October.
Come say hi if you have time.

Hey Ed, thanks very much for that link though I think Iíve seen a fair few of those videos on Youtube? Iíve got to admit Iím quite comfortable riding around town but I just havenít got out of town enough to feel comfortable with corners yet, but practice makes perfect and Iíll take it easy to begin with, Iím no speed freak which is something that plays in my favour (or so I think anyway). Unfortunately for me Iím not quite yet 30, which is screwing me on all fronts as far as insurance is concerned - never mind the only fine I have ever received is a single bloody parking ticket!

JD, itís a real bugger for riding at this time of the year, I get up in the morning with the intention to ride but end up sitting in my car instead, but come 5PM and knock-off I wish Iíd ridden the bike! That said, the cold weather in winter is much preferable to hot weather in Summer, Iím a hefty bloke and I hate the heat!

ChucknCath, that sounds great, now that Iím no longer working shift work (as of 3 weeks ago) itís going to be a lot easier to commit to things like that, shoot me a message closer to the date and Iíll see what I can do - it would be good to make friends with some riders, only a few acquantences of mine ride and they arenít too keen on hanging out with a bloke on a Virago, seem to think I wouldnít be able to keep up!

Thanks for that Charlie, looks like I'm on the wrong bloody end of things but I'll still try to get out that way for a meet up!
