Hi everybody, I'm a newbie rider currently living in Sydney. I got my "L" two weeks ago, my motorcycling gear one week ago and my first bike 1 day ago. I've always dreamed about riding a motorbike, but ignored that because of lack of money (being a student). Now I can luckily afford one. My brief story: Just a few months back I decided to buy a scooter, in order to being able to go around the city easily. I was then suggested by several mates and colleagues to get a motorbike instead. Given the restriction around automatic/manual bike during L and P, I told myself "What the heck, let's try manual, just in case". And boy, I loved it. So here I am. Cheers!
