  1. Finally picked up my bike today from action in the city and rode home in peak hour I am well chuffed with myself as its the first time i've ridden since my pre-learners a couple of weeks ago.
    I found that it really wasn't that hard if you just looked where you were going and let your subconcious do the rest.

  2. Congratulations!! :grin:

    I've been licensed for 2 weeks and my husband doesn't want me riding alone yet, but all you lucky kids down south don't even have to have a licensed rider with you on your learners!!!

    But then the good point - I didn't have to wear a crappy P plate when I got my car license!!!
  3. Well done NG ..

    Great feeling isn't it :grin:
  4. maybe try the back streets a bit before jumping out on the open road ?

    congrats on the new bike.
  5. Rode to work this morning no hassles stayed in the bus lane most of the time then lane split until i got into the city proper then just stayed in my lane

    never been so excited to go to work :grin:
  6. nice one! :grin: just watch out for jerks turning left from the middle lane cutting across the bus lane
  7. congrats on the new bike!!

    becareful of buses too - they like to squeeze u in...
  8. I stay well away from the buses

    they are really agressive when it comes to lane changes

    thanks for the feedback looking forward to going on a group ride
  9. aww u have nerves
    i'm still debating whether to ride to and from work, cos peak hour on the freeway is not fun
  10. Likewise - I haven't done the commute yet due to the fwys. Its bad enough it my car let alone on a bike........
