Hey all. I have been going to do Q Ride for years and have just never got around to it. So I took the plunge and booked into do it. I booked as a novice (which I am) and am doing it over 2 days. I started today thinking "what the hell am I doing!!!! I have no business riding a bike" I was so nervous and a complete gumby. Stalls, missed gears, no signals etc. I was out of my element. Fast forward 5 hours and I was out on the open road with 4 others on 600 Hornets.... I was on a CB250 but it could have been a rocket, such was the sensation...... I was already hooked. When we got back from the road ride I was put on the Hornet 600 and faaaaaark, I loved it and pretty much did all the competicies then and there on it. I will be back on Wednesday to do it on the 600, I can't wait!!! It was a big step in one day, from having only ridden small dirt bikes and Ag bikes 15 years ago to getting on a 600. Bring on Wednesday!!!!
