I'm still alive. phew. My first ride through typical Sydney (crap) roads and traffic. HART's teachings about buffer was very important today, and as expected, many cars cut in front of me into the buffer so I just slowed down. Also looking where you are turning helped so much. Just have to forget you're doing the curve at 60-70kmh and trust the bike and leaning. The thread about everybody's tips was really good.. I thought about all thos tips while I was riding When I got to my destination, I didnt know where to park though. Finally found a bike only parking area, but guys, what's the ettiquette with street parking? Can I just slot anywhere between two parked cars? Do I need to pay the Meter? Thanks, forum!
