There are probably many who either own one or have owned one... they are good solid bikes.

Please link us to the thread where you were asking questions about a new purchase. Not sure which one you were. Congrats!! Is it the one in your avatar?

F3 is a great bike. If I bought a used bike I would change the oil, brake fluid, spark plugs, and antifreeze. That will give an indication what kind of maintenance they did on the bike. I would also look at the brake pads, adjust the levers (if adjustable), adjust the suspension to stock specification, and check the tires and tire pressure. If there are no maintenance records, I would change the fork oil and check the valve clearance, or have it done soon. Enjoy.

Congrats. My Honda is yellow and black. Good choice.

Not sure if you do have one already, but if not, make sure that you get your motorcycle endorsement on your license right away. The cops will rape you if you get pulled over...not to mention your insurance not paying in the event of an accident.

Also, have you done any rider training? That's an excellent way to learn how to ride properly! Money well spent.

Ride safe.

Any Aussies that want your bike painted.....give me a holler! www.paintwerks.com.au
