    If you require your license for your work etc, please do not risk riding around without your license, as tempting as it is. Most of us have been there done that, and we get it, however being patient and going out with shadows etc is the best way to go. In fact if I did it all again I will try to enjoy the time learning as imo was some of the most fun times. I'd be happy to shadow for you on a learner ride one day.

    Yea absolutely mate I couldnít agree more. Not only is it not worth the risk but itís just more enjoyable riding with a shadow because Iím not very experienced and have a lot to learn.

    And when youre licensed and experienced, sometimes its fun to slow down and help out the next gen.
    Damn, wish i had a few more days off, Really enjoyed that cruise yesterday, Ill shoot ya a text next time im floating around, even if its just meeting a few other riders for an evening coffee. Hmmm, i might have to keep ya away from the tunnel ROFL

    Hahaha but my bike sounds so sick! Next time we should go through the tunnel like 5 or 6 times not just the two like yesterday lol. If I was close to you I could hear your bike just barely my exhaust just drowns out anything else, including my own thoughts. But those flames you were spitting out... damn man that was mental.

    Edit: not to say we werenít responsible or anything... we were very responsible and mature throughout the entire day. Minus the tunnel. Actually including the tunnel. Yea we were totally good boys in there.

    Back when some of us did it, it was just a, "Tsk, Tsk, Tsk... How far have you got to go... alright fuck off and don't let me catch you again"

    Now you'll probably get tazered, pepper sprayed, beaten, have your bike confiscated, and cop a right good fisting in court and probably get charged for pepper spray refills.
