  1. ...at HART in Kilsyth. My L-plate has been ceremonially cremated.

    Thanks to all the Netrider people who organised the learner practice day a couple of weeks ago! Thanks also to Mark and Karl from HART, who were great.

    So. 365 days and counting... :LOL:

  10. Big congrats there! Going for my learners on March 2nd and hopefully get my licence not too far away. See you on the road sometime :)
  11. Congrats Gromit, good job passing! :D
  12. GoodOnya Gromit!!

    I got my test on Mar 6th, can't get in any sooner :(

    In Tas us old farts can get exempted from the P's.
    So after the 6th I could well be an "open" rider, can you do the same in Vic??

  13. Congratulations :)
  14. It doesn't work like that here. Restrictions for 12 months, but as I have a full car licence I don't have to display a P plate.

    So it's another 12 months of throbbing 250cc power for me! :roll:
  15. Even tho I could get an open license next month I won't be getting rid of the Across and getting a bigger bike straight away, that'd be suicide :shock:

    I intend to wait at least another year anyway, hopefully restoring a bike in the meantime. But it's handy if a good deal comes up, I can legally ride it occasionally.

    I've had offers of riding mates bikes to see what I really like (cruisers, sports, etc) but I wont do it until I get a full license.

    We'll both be OFARC's for a while :p

    (by the way, if it's throbbing you might have dropped a cylinder :wink: )

  16. Exempted from P plates but bound by the restrictions for the first 12 months!
    Btw Congrats Gromit, I'll work up the courage one day!
  17. well done old man :LOL:
    next step , goldwing or bmw :wink: :LOL:
  18. Well done Gromit.
  19. Congratulations. 12 months seems to take forever while you are waiting for it to go by but it's not that long realy.
