  10. Well look at the Lights
    BUT don't pre Judge what they are going to DO

  11. Congrats Dave ... Ridetek are great, and tones knows his stuff :)
  12. Huh? Green lights _always_ change to amber. So be prepared, and don't be come a red light runner.
  13. Not the lights used for L's and P's, testing for correct response to emergency scenario :) I think you'll find that's what tones was talking about.

    * I am sure TONES meant the same thing also *

    :shock: sigh back in the kitchen for me :roll:
  15. What you need to do is move to the NT, do a course called the advanced riding course run by METAL then you don't have to wait. :)

    Hehehe, i'm getting around on a 750 after only getting my P's last April.


    And no demerit points! Its going to suck in 3 months when i have to change my license over to Vic.
  16. Yeps....P's test lights. Best thing is to not look directly at them, but focus beyond them so you can recognise what lights in your periferal vision. When you focus on them you start to decide of a point of no return and then decide on a backup plan. In other words you decide as soon as a light comes on, you will be left with only one option, the one you have decided upon. If it is different, then one of two things happen. Either there is an increase in reaction time and you demonstrate the skill, but not to your ability. Or you try and react with one skill whilst performing your decided skill as well. For example try and swerve whilst emergency braking (usually hurts).

    Thanks for the compliment Jase :grin:

  17. Well done on passing your 'P''s..

    Ridetek are doing a great job getting our membership licensed.. Keep up the good work..

    btw, i suggest you dont count the days.. I have 6 months to go and the first 6 months has felt like 6 years... Just enjoy riding and the time flies..
