Hi I'm Di (Netrider required that my username be at least 3 letters long). i'm 28, live in Darlinghurst and got my L's in August '10. I'd like to meet people who live in/near Sydney CBD who wouldn't mind riding with an overly-cautious novice. As my partner and I share the bike, and we are both on our L's, we can only ride one at a time! And i'm always up for improving my technique - any knowledge imparted would be extremely appreciated! I have only really started riding this last month - full-time shift work and part-time uni didn't allow for me to get out much. But i'm loving it now! I did my first 50km joyride last week. I just booked my Pre-provisional course on 29 Jan at St Ives (I wanted it out of the way before my big trip to Canada in Feb) so i hope to get to some practice sessions at Homebush before then. I hope there will be one running this Saturday (8 Jan). As i have a cruiser i'm a bit worried about the weaving, swerving and u-turn stuff - I still can't help but put my foot down - yikes! Attached is a photo of our Suzuki Intruder - the day we took it home.
