After 40+ years, I decided to garner together some guts and learn to ride a motorbike (I got put off when at aged 15 in Sydney, a mate belted into me for dropping his "Yamaha IT 250"....excuse the bad memory or wrong terminology/brand/model).
I never thought I would ever be able to ride again, my confidence was sapped from the above-mentioned drop, but at 42 I found a legend of an instructor and a bloody great chap who got me up to scratch and I passed my 250cc over a year ago. Now, I want to 'upgrade' and pass my 'R' class and want to do it on my own bike (above 250cc) that I hope to buy ASAP. I guess I'm trying to politely say that I'll be asking for a lot of help and advice from you experienced riders and I hope it is not going to be a painful process for you as well as me.
My name, Steve, nickname Hij (as in fridge) and I'm driving a taxi at present but hope to get back out onto the real road into a truck job soon.
Anyway, I just wanted to say hi, and thank "Harro" (wherever he is), a chap I picked up on my taxi rounds in Vic Park a few weeks back who told me to get onto this site, so to you Harro and everyone else, hi and thank you in advance for any help and future advice I'll be after!
A really great site from what I've seen so far.......and very busy!
Thanks everybody, look forward to meeting some of you in the future.
I apologise to the mods if this is in the wrong section
