    Welcome Ben! Felt pretty much the same but that feeling faded really fast after getting up the courage and hitting the road, Went out every night after 10pm when it's nice and quite in my area. Relax and have fun man, your Gunna love it.

    Have a read through the Recources pages, I really liked Noob 101.
  3. Training and Practice till the bike bit is instinctive. Then you can concentrate on the others :) Enjoy it mate, nothin like perfect weather on your favourite road. Or track
