G'Day from Australia

Hi all,
been poking around for a while but thought it was time I made it offical.
I am just getting back into riding after 10 yrs away. I had a Hyosung GV250 for the last 10 mths. I discovered the strom when I went looking for a bigger/new cruiser. WOW love at first ride! Couldn't afford new and started looking at the used range. found a K8A wee for a good price, plus a few farkles. Love it so much! I'm planning on doing most of my own maintenance so expect me to ak lots of questions

Just purchased a 2012 Glee after trading a Honda CBR1000rr Fireblade and couldn't be happier.
I was losing interest in riding sports bikes on crappy roads and saw the Glee as a viable alternative. It handles great and is a joy to ride.
Early days as the new bike is still in the run in stage but so far so good. The old adage less is more could not be a truer statement.
Like many others I turned to this site and monitored responses and feedback on the new model and was encouraged by owners enthusiasm for the bike which made my decision to sell the Blade that much easier
