    Talking Hello PSB

    Hi,

    I have been on PSB for a few months. I have gained some good insights from the shared experiences of its members. I use the Whats New section to scan for relevant threads and have found PSB members to be really helpful.

    I have been interested in motorcycle for a few years, but had very little to do with them prior to starting my L's. I low sided several bikes in Bali (before learning how to ride) and mostly avoided them. But, riding in Australia is completely different because of the road rules, higher speeds, number of vehicles on the road, etc. I am planning some motorcycle holiday trips though (Oman).

    I bought a new motorcycle because I didn't know anyone who rides a motorcycle to involve them in my first purchase. Plus I preferred having the warranty from a dealer. I bought a Honda CB300F, which has been a great learner bike. As it was a new bike I discovered what breaking in a bike involves, which was based on what Youtube said. I had never owned a new vehicle before, so it got some special treatment. Like oil changes at 250Km and 500Km which is a bit overkill I admit. I am enjoying the easy access to bits and pieces on a motorcycle, compared to a car, sorry cage.

    I look forward to joining some rides in the future, while I am still in Perth - as I am planning to relocate to Asia soon.

    Cheers,
    Shadowbike

    Mate of went for a walk through there not long ago, reckons it's alright.
    Welcome here,
    Once you get riding in your blood you tend to swap out a few freinds for folks who ride.
    Enjoy yourself.
    That's what life is for.

    Indeed. This week has gone from a choice of parking bays to the last one or having to look further/beyond than my "local".

    Some amazing roads around Oman, and across the border in the UAE, would love to have a bike there but driving or riding in the Middle East is a test of bravery.

    Check these out though, just mind the wild camels, sand drifts and locals.

    Also welcome.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    TurboR1 those are nice paved twisties in Oman. Yep, watch out for the camels, hehe.

    This caught my eye. I can't recommend it but looks interesting. https://oryxadventures.com/en/tours/wahiba-sands/
