Well hello from Newcastle Australia

What's up throttle jockeys? Only just got into road bikes in the last two years, before that I was strictly a dirt lover. Decided to get my L's just for the hell of it and one day went into the bike shop to get spark plugs for my Banshee and walked out with a new R125 Since then I've upgraded to a XJ6NL and ride mostly around the Hunter Valley area.

Yeah its pretty much a naked FZ6 but with a very watered down engine due to the restrictions on learner bikes over here

Yeah there are plenty of great rides from wodonga
Granya road is fairly close and pretty fun
Google Maps
so is the road to beechworth and then there is the great alpine road
If you go east there are some of the best motorcycling roads around Kosciuszko National Park

I love this part of the country
