Had my bike 4 days and was planning a 30 min drive up the road today and back again to build up my skills a bit but when I woke up the air was still, the sky was blue, I was healthy and feeling good and the bike was calling. So I suited up and made the ride across town to break the news to my folks as I figured it would be easiest that way (and it was). So along the motorway and highway for about 40 mins plus another 20 mins in suburban streets. Trip over was uneventful. Trip back - I had a driver try and cut me off up the right hand lane after turning left out of lights then indicating to change lanes to turn right - she just couldn't wait an extra 2 seconds and had a few people overtake me on the motorway ( I was doing 100) then pull in front rather too close for my liking but otherwise was all good. I dealt with those issues as they happened, no big drama. Just another reminder to stay alert. On top of all that it was a hell of a lot of fun! (except the wind gusts when doing 100 on the motorway on a pretty light bike!) Still smiling!
