Hi from Cheltenham

  1. My new Yamaha R3 is being delivered today. I'm new to bikes at 40+ Expect I'll be taking it slow around the block for a while until I've built some confidence.

    It's great to be taking on something new and I'm looking forward to attending the Elwood ride training sessions.

  17. 6 months ago, at the age of 59 never been on a bike. 5000kms later i would ride anywhere. best advise i got was to ride 20-30 mins everyday around where you live.
    not the busy roads.not warrigal, not nepean hwy, not beach road. up and down the small ide streets. starting stopping. turning left and right.simple slow moving bike control. everyday. after a month but when yr ready venture out to the less busy roads. plan your route. dont think that every vehicle will kill you but they could. got luck have fun.
