I'm a new rider at the age of 45 so doing the mid life crisis thing in style. Picking up my R3 tomorrow then jumping out of a perfectly good airplane on Sunday ( perhaps I should have done the jump before the bike, if it went **** up I could have saved a few notes ) but anyway at least I will get to ride there!
Pretty excited but a little nervous at the same time, only thing making me nervous is the riding away from the dealers, fingers crossed for a smooth introduction to the R3.
Anyway looking forward to it and just made a last minute switch from the Ninja 300 to the R3 and glad I did, I think the R3 is the best looking bike I have seen in that range, Love the Blue/silver combo and think if I had got the Ninja I would have seen other R3's and always thought I should have got that, pretty sure I wont get that feeling when I'm riding the R3 and see a Ninja.
As for me I am living in Melbourne having moved here from London 2 years ago, been a bit of a life changing time of late and getting on a bike is another step in that direction. really looking forward to going out just for the sake of it again and not just to get from A to B as is with the car. Been driving cars, trucks and even buses at one point for 27 years now, Think I am about to find out how to enjoy the road once again!
Looking forward to chats on here and I'm sure I will be picking your brains for tips soon enough.
All the best
