G'day from Queensland Australia

G'day All,

Names Trent, I work as a sparky in Queensland.
I recently went bike shopping with my mate, while he was kicking some tyres I decided to go for a joyride on a 2016 Brutale 800..... turned out to be an expensive joyride, traded my 2003 Buell XB12s for a Dragster RR. Overall pretty happy with it except for the suspension, I thought I could adjust the front when I got home, Front rebound adjustment did nothing, looking at new inserts now but that's a post for another thread.

Great forum you have here, loads of info and lots to take in, hoping to contribute along the way.

Welcome aboard the good ship MV reminds of the time I went to buy a tin of chain lube for my 1985 GSR 750 Suzuki and came back home with a mint 1992 Fireblade

Thanks Grakat,
Very different to the Buell, I loved that bike and had no plan to swap it, but the Dragster blew me away! and stretched my arms a little.
It was a great bike, never gave me any trouble and always fun, also less tempting in the speed department that's for sure.

I like the idea of getting more beef outa the Dragster exhaust but there might be benefits to being a little stealth on a machine with this much giddy up.

loads of welcomes, thanks all, you've kept me up for hours at night already lots of catching up to do, information overload!

Still finding my way around and working out posting etc. My teacher always said learning to read would come in handy one day, it took 35+ years but she was finally right.
