I've been looking forward to doing this. Finally mid semester break and no assignments and I only work through the week. Free Time! So I decided to take a blast up through maitland then to morpeth, Raymond Terrace and then back to Newy. I had so much fun, I love country roads. I saw plenty of riders, nodded to most. The drivers were polite and gave me plenty of room and stayed back when I was doing 80 in 100 zone. A speed triple blasted past and I fell in love. The only bad point as soon as I got back into Newcastle some idiot in a 4x4 started tailgating me in a 50 zone. Dunno why must been from the huge grin on my face. So after a month of having my l's I cannot see myself giving up riding. So other newbies what has been your best experience on a bike so far? Experienced riders suggest some things that us newbs should do.
