Hello from New Zealand
Permalink  
 


Hello everyone. 

I recently bought a TTR250, I love it. I've been lurking around the forum a bit, gleaning lots of useful information, and I thought it was about time I introduced myself. 

I'm a motorcycle instructor and motorcycle postie in Auckland, New Zealand and own a ttr and a  Suzuki dl650.

Loving the ttr, it's so easy to work on, and so much useful information on this forum. I've already bought a couple of bits from totally ttr, excellent service. 

I'm sure I'll pop up occasionally with some stupid questions.

 

Ben for now.

Welcome to the forum, Ben.

Can you instruct the TTR people how to fall off gracefully on the lanes without bouncing too much? confuse

Enjoy the TTR - they get better as you use them more.

Hi Ben

Your story sounds like mine - long time reader - new contributor.

Also, we are both in Auckland. I'm in East Tamaki Heights

You can follow my first Forum contribution under "Oldie Newbie" which is still on the first page list of the Forum.

Maybe we can have a catch up sometime.

Your Motorcycle Instructor skill sounds interesting as I am self-taught and will no doubt have some bad habits.

I have done four (within North Island) Britton's Adventure Rides and have actually managed to do one of them without an "off." All but one of the "offs" have been gentle, soft landings.

A couple of weeks ago I did a "roadie" over to Whangamata (via Kaiaua) and that was a great ride over but it rained, hailed and thundered and lightening'd on the ride home, which was "interesting" on a nearly worn out Michelin AC10 on the back. Bloody Weather Forecasters got that one wrong !

Cheers

Jeff

Thanks guys.
Kiwijeff, check out passmasters.co.nz and do some ride forever courses with us, $20 or $50 for a full day of training. You can do them on a ttr, or any other bike you have. It'd be good to meet up for a ride, I'm not much good off road yet, not too many places round here for that.

A belated welcome to the forum Ben!

Good to hear you are enjoying the TTR and that you are finding your way around the forum.

I think we have a thread going on just about anything on the TTR250 but don't be afraid to ask wink

Brian
