G'day all. What a great forum! so many chat rooms etc on the net, but OMG a forum IN Australia AND dedicated to bikes & riding! i'm a happy camper! Hope i don't seem TOO newbie here, but a bit about myself: Well, my son turned 18 in early '07, so i started thinking "well, he'll always be my son but he's growing up now . . . what have i always wanted to do for myself, but have never done?" So before i knew it, i was off to the Stay Upright Pre-Learner Course, got mysef a learner bike & have loved it ever since! Still have a LOT to learn tho . . . Anyway, look forward to catching you all later! Andrew.
