    After much bemoaning and a lot of patience from those around me I passed my RE test this morning!
    I would like to take the opportunity to thank the shadows who have taken time out of their days to pick me up, T bone, Crobbo, Alen and Rudy.
    Also thanks to Stoneville for leading the LNR rides that have given me so much more confidence riding.
    Big thanks as well to all the great people that gave me encouragement and tips on these rides.
    See you all at the next one less one yellow plate.
    Also thanks to Sam for pushing me to book the next test.

    Passed my R-E license today at 7:55. Had a bit of a hiccup as I had a lesson booked before the test and the guy no-showed. I won't name and shame the crew because elsewise they were great.
    Bought myself a Yamaha YZF-R3 and am looking very forward to tagging along on some rides!

    Ouch. Someone somewhere just clearly doesn't want you to be riding a bike.

    thats shit, try northam or toodyay there is usually spots there with in a few days, & a fun ride home if you pass.. or a ride home in shame with ya L vest on

    when i passed my R's in northam it was the best feeling knowing i had 60ks of unrestricted goodness ahead of me, i think i would have been close to suicide if i had to ride home with the L vest & 100km speed limit lol
