Boy oh boy oh boy, am I excited to have found this site
My name is Adam, I'm 41 and a computer programmer. I've been riding bikes for a little more than 20 years. My first bike was a Kawasaki GPz250, my most recent bike was a 2001 Aprilia RSV Mille (you can check her out here and the bits that I added to her here).
I currently live in Australia, just near Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory. I'm moving to Canada in 3 weeks. I'll be moving to Nanaimo and getting married in October.
Just saying hello... If it's not stretching the friendship too much at the start I have a couple of questions. Firstly, is anyone on the board from around the Nanaimo area? And secondly, just how much does it cost to get a new bike on the road? I'm thinking very seriously of getting an 04 CBR1000RR and the MSRP is $14,999. What I would like to know is just how much I'd have to pay to get one of these on the road, taxes and insurance and the like.
Looking forward to getting to know you all through the board and hopefully in person on the road.
Cheers - Demosthenes
