Hi everybody!

  1. Hi, my name is Andrew.
    I just got myself a piglet and the learners licence.

    Thanks to my son, my interest in biking is being rekindled big time.
    To be honest I got a bit jealous of him riding his bike all the time and everywhere.



    Earlier this year, I rode a motorcycle for the first time after nearly 40 years.
    A bit wobbly at first, but... hell, I loved it.
    So I decided to get my own, and here I am.
    ;-)

    Looking forward to meeting you all.

  2. Welcome Andrew. It's never too late to start again, just be aware that the same rules still apply. Every other vehicle, including other bikes, is a potential hazard, and the ground is just as hard. Thankfully the gear we can buy is infinitely better than back then; jackets actually keep the cold and rain out, and protect you as well....

  3. Hi Andrew. I have a similar story although I'm not quite back on my bike yet. Still with mechanic restoring the old girl. He is taking his time but that's kinda ok cause I'm a bit cash strapped atm.
    Anyway welcome to what is known as nutrider. I've found this site to be awesome. Everyone is so happy to help with all kinds of info etc. There are a few smart arses around but well that's their problem.
    Keep upright old fella & take care in that mad Sydney traffic.

    See if you can attend the Sydney Learners sessions at Homebush on a Saturday - many others in the same position you are in with lots of experiences to share! Well worth it

  11. You'd probably be better off with a bike, but enjoy that piglet. Is it like Pooh's?
