Hi all, I just got my Ls 2 weeks ago and have been reading this forum for the past 2 months - so thought I should finally drop a hello Picked up my bike a week ago after delaying it for a few days due to rain. In the end I decided it just has to be done drizzle or not. So Picked it up and rode around the back streets in the rain/drizzle for about 1.5-2hrs before I got home. The missus was kind enough to come by and provide a 'buffer' escort behind me on the way home hehe. Funny thing is I didn't drop the bike during the pre-learner course but within the first 30min of my new bike... oopsy. lol Was stopped at a turn which had a dip and was still getting accustomed to the friction point of the bike. No biggie, just a slight scratch on the exhaust cover and the handle bar. Glad I got a 250 bike and not a restricted 650 that I was looking at. After much reading and listening I decided that having a lighter less powerful bike (and at this stage it has more than I need) allows me to learn better and save more Anyway, went for a ride through the national park to Stanwell tops on the weekend with the missus (she has had her learners for a month) - amazing day out. Was actually quite amazed by some of those cyclist! Came across a pack of 6 that was hogging the whole road and wouldn't budge so I just hanged back for a bit... then came the down hill and I lost sight of them. They were taking very tight corners at 60kmh+ whilst in formation and gaining speed. Kinda scarry considering their thin tyres and thinner lycras! Anyway... I'm rambling now just saying hello!! will make my way over to Homebush over the coming weeks to say hello!
