Yesterday husband and I went for our usual Sunday morning breakfast and decided to head home through the Dandenongs. It was such a beautiful day. From the moment I got on the bike it felt like all of a sudden something clicked after 4 months and everything felt different. U-turns and roundabouts freak me out ... they still did a bit yesterday but for some reason it felt easy, smooth and seemed like I had been doing it for years. Although the cars held us up through the hills, the bike and I seemed to be really in tune and the corners were feeling awesome. We stopped in Belgrave and hubby asked if I wanted to swap bikes!! Woh .. are you kidding me??!!! :grin: :grin: Of course!!!! He has a CBR1000F ... I have a GS500F. After giving me some instruction on how different the bike would feel ... I nervously got on and rode from Belgrave to Lyndhurst. By the time I reached Thompsons Road I really wanted to keep going as the feeling of the big bike was SO different to my little girl. While I wouldn't want to upgrade right now ... still have so much to learn and confidence to gain, I can see myself getting off the GS as soon as I am off my P's. This time next year ... I'm hoping husband's hand me down will become my daily commuter! Don't get me wrong .. I love my girl and as my first bike, she is great for me however I can see why people want to upgrade when they can. It really was a different riding experience. Awesome!!!!
