    Hi all
    Just picked up my 1st ever HD, 2010 XL883N Iron. Haven't ridden properly for over 10 years(since moving to Oz).
    Had previously always ridden Japanese Sports tourers but I've fallen for the cruiser style now!!
    Really keen to get out & about, meet new people, shoot the breeze about anything.

    Welcome Marty, you have some great riding areas down the Gold Coast, Springbrook, Lower Beechmont and Tambo among them. Enjoy the new toy and safe riding.

    Yeah definitely some good roads around here. I quite often go up Tamborine then down the goat track to Canungra. Beechmont is nice as well when they aren't doing roadworks. Springbrook is another nice ride as well. Just by mindful of all the lycra wearing tossers, the pricks take up a full lane at times.

    I go out most weekends, usually only for a couple of hours. Went out today as tomorrow is supposed to be raining. Normally me and a mate go out Sunday mornings and home by lunch. You are welcome to join us.
