    So it official.. I got my new bike (Beauty) home yesterday evening and couldnt wait for the day to end so I could get home and take her for a ride.
    Still on my L's i waited patiently for my two experienced girlfriends to show up to support me on my first ride.
    I am going for my RE's tomorrow and wanted to get some practice in so I was ready.
    The girls showed up and was a rocky start for me.... I have never riden a cruiser before and the adrenaline was pumping.
    After doing a few laps in around my local Streets we stopped for a chit chat to discuss how I was going and to see if anyone had any tips. Myself and one of my friends didnt think and left out bikes turned on and not running... yep you guessed it... flat.
    So after the three off us push started the bikes (lesson number one learnt.. turn your bike off while having a C.W.A meeting) we head back to my place to discuss a plan of action as i was feeling comfortable and ready to go for a real ride.. plan in place we were on our way.
    We are heading down the straight I go through a green light, my friend following goes through and orange light and the friend at the back goes through the orange ans then it turns red.
    I look in my mirrors and i see flashing lights.
    I pull over with my friend who was behind me and we realise i didnt have my L plates on.
    As the friend who was pulled over was a fair distance away from us we decided it best to head home.
    When our friend turned up to my house she advised that she recieved a 353 dollar fine for going through an amber light.
    The police had informed my friend they had received a complaint about motorbikes doing laps of the street. She explained I was a learner and needed practise.... looks like this new rider has caused quiet the kerfuffle ahhahaha

  4. G'day MRSeBUNNYMRSeBUNNY. Congratulations for your recent nuptials, Learner rider licence and first motorcycle! You're ticking a lot of things off in short order, very impressive. Good luck going for your RE licence tomorrow and hopefully the next ride with your friends is a little less dramatic.
