I enjoyed all the started late responses, turning 50 this year and just got Ls, funny I'm a grandpa too. Told the missus I was having a midlife crisis and if she complained I'd replace her with a younger blonde with a convertible, her response was no one would want you but did receive grudging agreement that I could get a bike. Took the youngest child with me on the Ls course (395 each for 2 day course not 795 each), so 2 novices in this house. He gets his bike on the 19th and I am able to get one after that. Was told I had to let him go first. Been browsing through various threads, resources and have to say was very impressed. Took a link from the insurance discussion under the resource and was pretty surprised by the quote, will be redirecting the boy there for a quote, price was about $1600 less so if that pans out it'll be worth the $100 for lifetime membership. Hope to learn a lot, hope to get the skills to get to some Saturday learner sessions, hope to learn to write shorter messages. I've been accused of having verbal diarrhoea, get I must have gotten some on my fingers. Any way, cheers to all. It's nice to be here.
