    Greetings from a brand new member of the group, and C109RT owner. I have spent some enjoyable hours reading just about every single thread on this site, and felt a bit like a "lurker" So, I decided to jump right in. I'm from south east Melbourne.

    I have uploaded some pics of my ride in the section "Black n Silver" .

    I commute most days weather and body permitting. Had long association with motorcycles, originally from France, got my license in 1966. Love doing my own tinkering and maintenance.

    Looking forward to meeting many of you at the annual meet in Albury in November.

    Cheers for now!

    Hi! Every one , I am overwhelmed by the warm welcome, thanks guys.
    Tassiedave I still have my original paper licence mate , mind you it's starting to look kind of scraggy, been in my leathers, drenched by winter rain and soaked in summer sweat. see the pics Ha!Ha!
    Gazzar you are quite a cunning linguist, your French is excellent, your effort is much appreciated ( but how did you know???).
    Just one more question, are any of you gentleman's planning to Camp in Albury? I've never stayed in a Rooom while at a meet ! that's for the Bourgeoisie!
    ( food for thoughts the weather should be good come November)
    just pondering.
    Until next time, Cheers to all.

    Now that a great idea " camping in a room" as suggested by Hopper, that's the sort of compromise I'm willing to look into.
    See you all in Albury.
