Never to old

By Alli C, Dec 27, 2015 | |
  1. Well I bit the bullet and decided it's now or never. I signed up to a pre learners motorbike lesson with Allstars in Dandenong. I was the only female but shared the same age group as the four other men who had also bit their bullets. Wondering if we were all having a mid life crisis, we navigated and nailed the course. And booked in for our Ls. And after a gruelling nine hour day I received my Learners permit. Woohoo, yay, holy shit, yippee. I had a second hand Suzuki Intruder in the shed at home waiting for me. (It's name is Black Betty, bambadam). I purchased it one week prior, the guys at Peter Stevens Dandenong were awesome. Salesman "it has a big compartment under the seat for your handbag". Me "sold".
    I couldn't stop smiling on my first ride around the local neighbourhood. And I'm still smiling. I've been on a few long rides with my son since. And am looking forward to joining a group of riders for rides. I'm building on my experience and my challenge is to ride to my Dads house in Lakes Entrance from my hometown of Wonthaggi.
    Rus Ler, Diantra and Petesul like this.
