Hi all

  1. Hi all,

    I've been lurking around here for a few weeks gathering as much information as i could and I thought that it was about time I intorduced myself.



    My name is Rob, I'm 26 and Im going for my learners this weekend (7-8 july) at stay upright in hoppers crossing.

    I will most likely be buying a GPX250 as my first bike and I am looking forward to it very much.

    Thats all for now, Rob.

  7. Hi again, thanks for the welcome

    I Just got home from the course and I am happy to say that everything went well, for me at least, one of our group fell off while attempting to swerve out of the way of an obstacle. He got back on the bike but when it came to the test he failed anyway. Not a great day for him.

    Now comes the fun part, bike shopping, it's a good thing I've got an RDO tomorrow, I can't wait to get out there.
