Hi from Campbelltown, NSW

  1. Hey guys,

    New to the forum and motorbikes.
    I'm going to get my L's soon, so I figured I'd join since I'm a bike enthusiast. Haven't quite got the bike yet, still looking around for a ninja 250 to learn on.

    Just a bit about myself:
    • Just turned 20
    • Able to get my driver's full license this year
    • Getting rider's learner license soon
    • Studying Engineering @ UTS
    • Live in Campbelltown, NSW

    Figured I'd start driving first to get used to the road before I try it on the bike.

    Great to meet everyone.
  2. Hi JC, Welcome.
  3. Welcome JC29. Good idea about getting used to the roads first. Enjoy the ride.
  4. ^ wot 'e said, guv :wink:
  5. There's a drawn out course of the MOST test at Macarthur Tafe, used to go there to practice whenever I could. The actual pre-rider course and test is actually conducted there too!

    Welcome aboard!

    Something to keep in mind though, riding and driving are two very different things to master, learning the road rules and how traffic typically behaves in a car is a good way to get started, but for me, riding taught me so much more in terms of buffering, judging traffic (and driver) behaviour and being heaps more alert to my surroundings.
