  • Hello there!

    I am new here so I am saying a quick hi. I have been driving for a few but recently had my carpark spot taken away at work and had since sold my car.
    i just got put on shifts for the next 6 months due to covid19 which requires me to be on the roads for approximately 30-40minutes at around 5-530am, 1130-1240pm, and 630pm-7pm.
    i stay approximately 30-40minutes walk to the busport and therefore am thinking of hopping on a moped for these 6 months just to tide the travelling time to and fro work while i obtain a RE license.

    I do not have to be on freeways although i do have two stretches of roads that have a 70km/hr limit (one being Thomas St). I am hoping that a moped will work for now seeing that i will be on the road during off-peakish periods. I have had people who were understanding and patient while i was a newbie driver years ago and I hope I will continue to meet such kindness.

    I really welcome any point-outs and advice. Thank you for your patience. Apologies that this isn't an exciting intro.

    Hi mate. Keep your eyes open , try to allow for drivers stupidity, be extra careful of driveways and side streets is a good starting point. Try to get your RE as soon as you can, as from what I’ve seen the scooters are shit to ride and more dangerous as a result of being so gutless. Once you’re on a real bike you’ll wonder why you put up with the cage for as long as you did. Good luck and enjoy

      Will be chilly at 5am. Buy some warm gear and it should be okay. Welcome to two wheels. You will surely enjoy it!
