  • Learner - Newbie Friendly, Weekly Ride, Thursday, 20th February, 2014

    The rides cater for confident learners and new riders, as well as those just looking for a cruisey ride or to help Perth learners gain more experience on the roads before they go for their tests.

    Meet point - Shell Service Station, Albany Hwy, just before John St

    Meet 6.15pm - Leave 6.45pm

    Hint for the ride - South, watch out Rizzo!!

    Read this, please the Learner - Newbie Rides - What to expect

    Need a shadow?? if so go here or ask nicely in the thread



    PLEASE READ THESE 10 POINTS

    1. Learners please make sure you are capable of riding in traffic at night, maybe even arrange with a shadow to take you out one on one a night or two before.
    2. Shadows, especially new ones, myself or the CM's (Corner Marker's) haven't met, Please make sure the learner you pick up is capable of riding in traffic at night, if you think they aren't ready for it, either bring them to the meet point to say Hi and then take them home again (we'll tell you where the dinner stop is so you can catch us up) or let them know that you don't think they are ready and take them for a small ride around their area.
    3. New riders (those that haven't attended before) Please introduce yourself to me or one of the CM's in Yellow vests, if you can't find us, ASK!!
    4. Newly Licenced riders, Please make yourself known to myself and/or a CM, you are also requested to ride near the front of the ride until you are familiar with how things work.
    5. Learner riders Please make sure you park your bikes at the front or out in the open, don't get boxed in, this will make it easier when we come to leave.
    6. ALL riders Please listen to the ride briefing, give each other plenty of room and we should all arrive at our destinations safe and happy
    7. As posted, these rides are for Learners to gain road time before their tests, some nights are slower than others, depending on the ride route and which riders turn up, if you want to do high jinks or the ride is too slow for you, Please leave at an appropriate place i.e. road junction, traffic lights etc. When you leave, Please make sure that you have been seen waving that you aren't continuing on the ride, if someone follows you, Please stop and let them know what you are doing, so that they have time to rejoin the ride.
    8. If you are coming along to show off or piss fart around - then Piss off, take your friends and do your own ride.
    9. All are welcome as long as they are prepared to behave and enjoy the ride for what it is.
    10. Don't pass Stoneville unless you are a CM!

          Fairly new learner, comfy with the small bikes but still getting ground on my cruiser with the extra go, so keen to give her a good run!

                Won't be able to shadow you to the ride, but could shadow you home afterwards if someone else can pick you up (work at the airport, live way far south)..


                edit:
                MAYBE could pick you up if no one else can, would be pushing it a bit for time though (leave airport around 5:30 ish, so would be... 6 ish by the time i get to you?), let me know the day before if no one else can grab you on the way up (so I can suss out where you are, i suck at finding places when riding around).

                “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

                            No trouble, as what thro said. No bribery required. Although mortgage payment would be cool
