Hi Everyone!

  1. Hey boys and girls, another noob here from western Sydney

    My name is Den and I'm looking forward to get my L's and first bike.
    I used to ride for a short period of time when I was 17 but thats years ago so I consider myself a complete newbie.
    BTW that period finished with a fall on a wet road and hence my current motto is "ride like a grandpa"

    Glad to find such a wealth of info on Netrider, big thanks to all contributors
  2. Welcome to Netrider, grandpa :LOL:

  4. Cheers guys
    I'm 34 but looking how fast my kids are growing I may become a granpa rather soon
  5. Welcome! Where abouts in Western Sydney?
  6. Welcome!
  7. Greystanes it is
  8. Welcome! I'll give ya a nod next time i'm in da hood :grin:
    Does the mature age rider thing still apply for over 30's...?
  9. Yes over 25's
    I wouldn't call myself a grandpa for no reason (y)

    Correction: apparently there used to be a rule when "mature aged rider" could go from L's to full licence providing that he's over 30 and keeps car licence;
    now its only an exemption from P2 stage for over 25's, i.e. L - P1 - Full licence
  10. Welcome to NR. (y)
