Default Hi from Western Australia

Just bought a 2008 VN900B. It is red and has saddle bags, screen and sissy bar. I am presently on an RE licence ( restricted to bikes 250cc or under unless accompanied by a shadow ) until December so it won't be getting ridden much before then. Can't wait tho, had a 40km ride home when I bought it and felt great. Hope to pick up lots of tips on here.

Cheers

Neil

Thanks for the welcome guys. With all the bikes I see around I'm sure there will be plenty more of us Aussies to come Scott!!

Went for my first ride on my "new" bike on the weekend. Did about 130km in a group, with my wife on the back and it was fantastic! Another month or so until I get my R (open) license and can't wait.

Here's a pic of the bike, hope it works.

Hi Busboy, we still have enough traffic to slow us down, just a bit less off it than you have to put up with! Getting busier and busier, I think the secret is out!!
