I rode home from Phillip Island today with a friend. We are both learners with only about 1000km experience on VTR250s. We knew it was windy but had to get home so off we went before the hoons finished at the V8 supercars. As soon as we went round the big roundabout onto the highway the wind hit us and I struggled to keep my bike in my lane. I rode as far left as I could as when a huge gust came I was pushed over to the right side. I was terrified of being blown in front of an oncoming car. I had to lean my bike into the wind which I'd read on here thankfully, but I struggled to ride. We were only doing between 60-80 km and had a hell of a lot of traffic behind us until it turned dual lane. Once we turned off at Lang Lang the tail wind was not so hard to handle but it was a frightening ride until there. Even then I was still pretty shaken up. What else could I have done if anything? Was thanking myself for selling the CBR125 too!
