So I did the 2 day course with HART at Tullamarine which was alot of fun :grin: . Today I went into the city via train to pick up the blue ZZR250 that I had on hold for me. Probably wasn't the best idea for me to have my first drive from Elizabeth st, down the eastern freeway to home, but I made it alive . I stalled it a couple of times when I was trying to leave the shop , left my blinker on a few times after completing turns, driving too slow...typical learner haha. After having made it home with the bike, and then cleaning my pants, I took it for a drive in some back streets to get a little more comfortable. I've already had my first drop which is a good thing to get out of the way. I tried making a right hand turn, uphill from a stop. Went a little wide, hit gravel on side of the road and bike slid down the ditch a little(DON'T LOOK WHERE YOU DONT WANT TO GO!). Picked it up fine, and got the fcuk out of there, with a shattered ego. Once I finally got to the back streets, was alot of fun, still have ALOT to learn...obviously. Coming from an auto licence on cars, gear selection is a major thing I have to learn. Also, just being able to trust the bike to go where I am looking is another thing too, but I'm sure it will come with time. The only bummer is that I'm pretty sure I'll get bored of the ZZR250 fairly quickly because I'm a pretty heavy guy. Didn't think it would be as slow as it is taking off...unless it's just me.
