  10. Hi and welcome to NR.
  11. Thanks everyone , Already doing some forum searching ... Fundamental life questions , Which bike will i end up getting!
    Im so anxious and excited , Ive always wanted to ride a bike opposed to a car.
    I remember my dad offered to buy me a car at 16 if i went for a car license and i told him to shove it :p Its a bike or nothing!
    Turning 25 end of this week and im finally doing it hahaha.

  15. Hi and welcome ForNeverAloneForNeverAlone and hope those nerves settle for your second test.

    And just so you're "never alone," pencil in the Jindabyne Multi-state meet up for next march and come meet some of us from down south.

    Cheers (y)

  17. hope so , I just think i psyched myself out too much.
    Got put on a bigger bike than i prefered , But quickly got over the nerves by the 2nd day.
    Need to work on my wrist placement as i had problems with the throttle. Any tips?
    By now , I have my jacket and pants so hopefully they know im determined to get this just hope it doesnt take me more than 3 tries :p Gets costly!.....

  18. hold your wrist a bit lower than you normally would. that way you have less movement and are less likely to 'over-throttle'.

    yes would also recommend you wear pants next time.
