Hey all, been lurking for a long time and thought i should start to contribute to the discussions instead of just reading them. I have been riding dirtbikes for around nine years, with a bit of motocross but mostly bush riding. I am on a '05 RMZ450 at the moment, and have got a RM125 that is being rebuilt. I have had my motorcycle learners permit for a long time (had to be extended), and have just got my p's. I have had minimal riding time on the road, as I only just got a roadbike a couple of weekends ago (ZXR250). I thought a lot of technique would have followed through, but was quick to realise that the transfer from dirt to bitumen is a lot harder than I thought! ie; throttle control (no slip usually on road) But I am getting there, and learning and reading through this site as much as possible. thanks.
