Hi from new member in Brisbane
« on: October 22, 2021, 05:21:18 PM »
Hi - New member here from North Brisbane (Albany Creek). I am especially interested in 70's bikes (I am member of the Historical Motorcycle Club of Queensland) and was looking for something to use other than for Club runs to save piling the miles onto the old girls!

Well - that's the justification! The reality is that I always wanted an ST and when one came up locally with only 43k on the clock and at what I thought was a reasonable price I couldn't resist!

After my first 300km ride it was clear that I was going to need some bar risers and Dr Google sent me to the Forum where I found I'm not alone! So - just had to join.

Pic of the new toy attached

Cheers

Paulie

Welcome from Caloundra Paulie. My brother-in-law has a lovely 1978 Z650. I'll see if I can get him along to an RTE once he has relocated to the Sunny Coast.
