After returning from Mount Gambier last night...
Hi, I started out on dirt bikes with a Yamaha XT 250 nearly 20 years ago, and moved on to a DT 200 which was ridden all over the state of SA with a mate exploring all sorts of back roads and deserts and getting lost quite a bit. A move to the big city of Melbourne changed the ride to a Vespa PX200 ( I know what you are thinking, but the scoot could fit where nothing else could, 35 mins in car or 8 mins by Vespa, not to mention heaps more fun!)
Now living in regional Victoria, the Vespa didn't have the legs for the long straight roads and we don't have traffic , so I parked a Yamaha XVS 950 in the garage. Really love it, smooth, comfortable and loves interstate trips, the latest being from Victoria up through to far north NSW and back to SA for the "not the CCC" rally before going home.
Married to Luce who recently took the step and traded her VS125 scooter on a really sweet XVS 650 Custom.
We are looking forward to getting out there and meeting as many people as we can, looking forward to the CCC rally next year.
