Hi everyone, Been around bikes for a long time. My husband is a long time rider and I've spent many, many hours as a pillion with him. Finally decided that it was time for me to do something about it, so went and did a HART course and got my learner's and a bike about 3 weeks ago. I've been very lucky to have someone like hubby to follow me around and so far have done about 80km on the back streets of our town. Was doing pretty well until yesterday, when I tried to take a corner in 3rd gear (thought I was in 2nd), locked the back wheel up and promptly dropped the bike Have found heaps of very useful information on this forum and am looking forward to getting to know some of you.
