Hi everyone!!

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' at netrider.net.au started by PEEair, Jan 1, 2012.

  1. I've been lurking this forum for a while now and has finally decided to join up. I just got my L in November and bought a white Ninja 250r.

    I've got no experience on a motorbike prior to getting my L and I'm embaressed to say that it took me 3 tries to pass. I think it because I have never took the time to learn how to ride a bicycle haha. After the 2nd fail I borrowed one to practice on and passed the test with flying colours. ](*,)
  2. Hi there PEEair - nice to have you along.

    Yeah, I think learning to ride a motorbike without ever having learned to ride a push bike would make it pretty hard. It depends what sort of motorbike I suppose, but in most cases I think many hours spent pedalling around in circles and figure eights and stuff help enormously.

    I've just got my grand daughters a PeeWee50 with training wheels, so I guess we'll see.
