  1. Rode my lovely shiny new (well new for me) 03 VTR250 to work in the city for the first time on friday. Surprisingly the transition from scooter to manual bike wasn't difficult at all! Just gotta figure out how the fuel tap thingy works :p

    Also passed the MOST test last weekend so no more L (or P) plates for me either.

    Life is good!
  2. hahahaha congrats!!

  3. Ahhh the good old fuel tap..... I remember just finishing the L's course, hopping onto the 600 cruiser all excited and taking my first ride to work. Of course just as i turn a corner the engine dies and a car nearly hits me lol. Fuel tap was off. Modern bikes don't really need to have the tap off like old Triumphs, so keep it on if you are a forgetful bugger like me!!
