Another new Melbourne rider

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by TigerMoth, Apr 14, 2016.

  1. Hi everyone, Tim here. I'm another who is getting back on two wheels after a break - I used to ride to uni on an early GPX250. I'm getting a scooter instead of a bike for now, it was easier to get the other half to approve of. I'll be on a Honda Silver Wing, and plan to use it to commute from the eastern suburbs to Melbourne CBD for work.

    If I'm welcome, I'd still like to join the Saturday practice sessions in St Kilda while I get used to riding again.

  8. Welcome,
    I commute from Eastern Suburbs to Melbourne CBD most days. If you ride south down Hoddle Street, there is some good information on this site re the Bus Lane trial etc..

  11. Cheers for the welcome wishes everyone! I picked the scooter up on Saturday (alas, too late in the day for the practice session), but had an enjoyable ride home anyway. I'll try and get along to practice next weekend.

    What's this about cake? :)

    GC - Thanks for the info re Hoddle St. Still haven't worked out whether going Hoddle St or Alexandra Pde will be best - have to get across to Docklands.
