    Just sad I didn't see this forum before. Cost me an arm and a leg practising at $70 an hour all this time. Glad to be on the other side now!

    Passed my test today at Joondalup! 2nd try, felt much more confident than my first try, where I locked up the rear tyre on the e-stops. Had Roy from a2a motorcycle training as my instructor, highly recommend him!

    Yay! Just passed today my RE at Midland. Was wetttt and my first time riding in the wet. Had hoped to sus wet things out a bit in the morning, but the weather was fine until about 10mins before the test! Was a bit worried about the quickstops, but got it right first off! Phew!

    Had 'Ant' as the assessor, he was friendly and approachable so wasn't stressful at all until the street we used for figure O's was too tight for my bike but we moved to a slightly wider area and completed that section before moving on.

    Got marked down a few things which was fair, but I'll take any sort of pass happily! (I blame visibility stresses as a contributing factor!! No excuses though!)

    Looking forward to not having to scrounge shadows at any opportunity especially this time of the year where willingness to brave the cold is hard to find. Now the long wait 4years before I can return the favour...

    Hey everyone!

    Passed my test a few weeks/month ago and have been riding daily ever since.
    Currently riding a little Ninja 250, with the plans to either step it up to a Ninja 650 whilst on my LAMS, or maybe just wait 'til my R class and go straight to the GSXR or R1.

    I've been riding offroad all my life, so completely new to the street scene!
    Might see some of you guys out there!

    EDIT: Oh, and I drag race a ZX14 in the A Modbike class at the motorplex. Might see some of you guys down there on a Wednesday night!

    Sure is... especially with the 14 to compare it to.. I think I'm definitely going to have to step up to a 650 in the interim.
