Re: Better introduce my self properly.
Welcome Theon. You'll discover that there are quite a few Aussies and New Zealanders here so you're not alone. With your background you should have no problems with a motorized bicycle. Share some photos of your bikes as well as your friends. And tell him/her to join too. We always welcome new members.
Have fun and ride safe.
