G'day

G'day all. Not sure how it works here but on other forums ive been on theres always been a place to introduce yourself. Granted i didn't look that hard as im on a mob device which is pretty iffy to use so i am sorry for making the mods work if this is in the wrong place.


Names Itchi. NSW and i am about to become the rider of a DR650SE. I've heard so much good about them (and a teense bad) but statistics have taught me that that is not a significant number (god bless stats).

I'll be upgrading from my beloved yello '89 honda spada (which i have worked hard to keep so i will not be selling, it will become my project).

the bike i will hopefully be buying has been tweaked for adventure already and been on a few but ill have to buy my own swag.

any advice on the swag to buy, things to bring on trips (essentials?) ,and also majorly, advice on servicing that i can do. i change my own oil. thanks a bunch and i look forward to becoming part of the adventure family.
