Hi All, I have just booked myself on to the pre learner course (HART St Ives) in three weeks time, looking forward to it! I started thinking about learning to ride a couple of years ago, back home, when working with a couple of guys that were into old British bikes but the weather up north always put a bit of a dampener on moving forward. Since moving to sunny old Oz I started thinking about riding again so I got a friend at work to give me a spin around the car park to see whether I liked it or not. Booked the course the next day I don't know much about bikes and I'm not that mechanically savvy so will be reading up on all I can. Bike wise I think something along the likes of the CBF250 I rode around the carpark, but I need to have a look round - leaning towards either upright or cruiser positioning.
