Had my L's a month now, and my new R3 a couple of weeks. 275km on the clock and today I took on my first commute through the mean streets of Melbourne travelling from Cheltenham to Docklands. On the way in - took Beach Road, which worked out pretty well. Door to door in about 45 minutes. Still a learner so strictly no lane splitting allowed - although I don't think I'd have the nerve for it yet anyway. Coming home, took on the Nepean Highway. Not used to 70kph+ so felt nervous and that was made worse by the wind buffeting. It's pretty breezy today but I really felt I was being blow around in my lane at higher speeds. Got there and back safe and sound and even did a bit of work in between. Have to confess I visited by bike at lunchtime. That's not too weird is it? Comments, tips and encouragement appreciated. A new milestone today. Pretty stoked.
