  • Nervous newbie

    Hi all.
    Many many moons ago I got my license, then inadvertently let everything lapse.
    I recently decided to invoke my my mid life crisis and get a bike, but have to start from scratch.
    I've had some lessons, and am finding it nerve wracking.
    My teacher says I really need road hours to loosen up etc.
    Guess what, my test is next tuesday ( groan )
    He suggested you mob as someone to latch onto in terms of fun rides.
    So I am here to get the S.P. on how these things work

      Hi

      I think your bike is the problem ha ha, oh alright a bike is a bike, they're all good

      Seriously, road time does help heaps, look in the shadow thread and see it there is anyone close handy that can take you out, just PM them.

      Not sure if there is a shadow available for you for tonights ride, post in the thread and ask just in case.

      There is also a learner friendly ride on Saturday that might be of help to you.

            wow, a veritable deluge.
            my only previous experiences on a messageboard are with one that pertains to my soccer club.
            the normal thing is to post once then get a torrent of abuse.
            the idea being that the abuse is part of ones rites of passage.
            you lot all seem very civilised, consequently that makes me nervous

                              Hi Makkam,

                              At this point you're lucky, and all appears civilized. Don't be fooled ... the abuse is never far away You can have as much as you can handle!

                              SO, Welcome !!!

                              and, really, get on the ride tonight, Grab a Savs! to shadow you and I'll see you there.

                              (And incase you still haven't found the shadow thread and need it for next week)
