I am also new to the forum.
I'm from Perth, Western Australia.
22, been riding for about 3.5years now, all road riding though.
I currently own (and selling) a Cagiva Xtra Raptor (carbon fibre edition).
When I ride, I ride long distance. I also don't own a car and am sick of lugging around my gear in a backpack weighing 10kgs every weekend I travel!
So!... I'm turning to either a Triumph 800xc or BMW F800 GS.
Want it mainly for the travel, the luggage and to do some more exploring off road ;) - where all the fun stuff is at!!
Also, I have recently ridden around Malaysia. One of the best things I have ever done. Some of the best riding roads I've ever been on.
I have a plan of doing some adventure riding through the north of Vietnam in April next year for around 15 days, if any one has any experience/input or wants to join me, I'm open to all!!
I'm so happy to finally find a forum like this, especially with the ladies getting into this style of riding. It's great!
Look forward to getting to know you all :)
