    Wattle Grove - looking for fellow riders!

    Heya guys!

    I have been reading through quite a few previous threads regarding learning to ride and finding shadows etc, and I understand the general consensus is to get professional lessons. I am doing this with a great instructor, but as an impoverished uni student (haha), I can't afford more than one lesson a week at the moment (even whilst working two jobs!). I am finding that the lessons are great, but it would be even better if I could practice what I am being taught between lessons. Unfortunately, none of my mates are bike enthusiasts and therefore I don't have any buddies to help me out. I know there is the list of shadows in all the Perth areas but I also know that I am not at a level of riding to ask for a shadow per se. I don't want to waste anybodies time.

    Is there anyone out there who just enjoys nice slow rides on quiet back roads with particularly new riders (for somewhat less remuneration than lessons - fuel/great company/coffee/lunch?) ? I completely understand if there isn't! I guess it would be nice even just to meet a few other riders around the area (Wattle Grove *home* or Murdoch *uni*) to talk bikes with and maybe eventually meet up with once I do get some more experience!

    During my lessons I am riding the instructors bike and it is just a shame to not be able to ride my KTM at the moment =(

    Anyway, any suggestions or replies from people in my area would be greatly appreciated! =)

    Cheers, Sin!

    You are out on the road riding around the suburbs with your instructor? If so check out the learner - Newbie Rides in 'In the Loop' and ask nicely for someone to shadow you to them

    As soon as I have a few more hours of riding under my belt and I'm confident that I won't just slow everybody down I will most definitely do that

    Hmmmm ... I don't think you need to worry about slowing anyone down more than what I already do

    Hey Sin,

    My exams are done now so I should have some free time. Does anyone know if there anywhere online to check what date you got your licence classes? I may be able to shadow, but unsure on the exact date. Ive tried the Dot direct website.
