    Motorcycle Forum - Welcome.

    Welcome to the Motorcycle sub-Forum.

    This forum is for Motorcycle discussion and a temporary home for the netrider.org.au forum/users. I encourage the users of the old netrider.org.au site to sign up and participate in this mature and friendly forum.

    Although this forum is primarily a Holden Forum there are quite a significant number of existing users who have Motorcycles (including myself) as well as many displaced users from the old netrider.org.au forums that were stolen to warrant a subforum and possibly if the interest/activity is there a sister forum to the Holden forum in the future.

    Please remember to read the Forum FAQ and understand the rules.

    Smitty,

    Don't get me started on the underhanded and shady actions of the individuals in question. Netrider was my vision and idea ever since the Sydride and Melbride days in the mid 90's. It's also public record form the posts on ausmoto all those years ago I just CBF'd fighting them for the content and the org.au domain redirects here. If there is the traffic and demand for a standalone entity then I'll be looking to go down that direction for sure.

    Also www.netrider.org.au redirects to here so hopefully we will have some new members to show for it as well.

    Re: Motorcycle Forum - Welcome.

    Hi,

    I am interested in the bike forum. I have just purchased a new Harley Softail Custom - yes, it is my midlife crisis fix.

    All jokes aside, I have had two other harleys in the past (superglide and an electraglide) about 12 years ago.

    Just started riding again after a bit of a break - still a bit nervous and probably should do the Stay Upright Course to refresh my skills (sounds like a good Xmas present).

    Whilst I regularly drive in Sydney, riding the bike in this city gives me a new perspective on the stupid, aggressive antics of drivers who seem to recognise no limits on their conduct and lack of concern for others; eg I saw a woman this morning driving above the speed limit in a school zone doing her makeup whilst holding her compact in her left hand with the mirror in front of her face blocking her view of the road!

    shep.

    Re: Motorcycle Forum - Welcome.

    If that frightens you, don't come West to WA!!! They're all mad here: rude, aggressive, careless and very proud to remain so. At least a few are armed, or willing to use force, so chatting bad drivers can be risky. The traffic is easy, so no-one has to drive well, and so no-one does. (see: Volvo drivers disease) I have to be very awake all the time, and sold my Honda Elite because the mental effort to be safe was too great. It was the most difficult/dangerous thing I've ever ridden, because of its limitations, the bad roads themselves and the other road users attitudes. I couldn't bring myself to ride it as if they didn't matter to me. My life was at constant excessive risk from other people's actions, not my own, and I wasn't willing to keep up the effort. Riding was a chore, and extremely risky. My 250's can't outrun them, and even if I had something faster, I can't ride well enough to get away. I'm not able to ride consistently quickly or fast, not even if my life depended on it. My riding mindset doesn't allow it, & I can't overide that and not immediately have serious control & judgment problems.

    Re: Motorcycle Forum - Welcome.

    Hi everyone,

    My names Patrick Doohan, i Live in New Zealand and have jumped over onto your forum from our one Kiwibiker.co.nz

    I'm currently beggining racing in what we call 'streetstock' or Formula4/5. I'm riding an Rg150 for Fivestar suzuki and everythigns coming together well, just waiting for the winter series to start. Did my first race in december (National eventfor NZ) at the Taupo international circuit and finished with two 2nd places and a 1st place. So that was a good start for my first time on the bike.

    What im really interested in finding out if there is any relation between myself and Mick Doohan. to do that I'm guessing i need to follow both his and my family history's back to Ireland. How well known is Mick with the general public? because i know most of the New Zealand riders are pretty easily approached and everyone knows everyone else (although NZ is a much smaller country!) If anyone knows anything about where i can find a bit more on Mick's History then that'd be awesome
    (it says i can't post Links, so no pics of my bike yet sorry)

    Re: Motorcycle Forum - Welcome.

    I haven't visited the LS1 site for ages, its great to see though there is a part for bikers now !! Great Stuff.

    Are you going to have a part for organized rides? I did one Sunday just past down Great Ocean rd with 7 other bikes. 480km round trip. Nothing beats group rides. I have also done the Black Spur/Reefton Spur grp ride. Anzac weekend a group of us are headed up to NSW and riding around the top of Vic.
