  1. Got my learners in March & had a borrowed bike (96 kwacka GPX250) for a while but had to give it back :( . Good news now I'm buy'n it & should have it back for the weekend :grin: Can anyone tell me how much experience/skill you need before going for your license?

    Thx Jo
  2. Hi trinity, welcome aboard.

    Don't need to be too experianced, getting L's is harder. The next step is more of a formality. If you're out once a week for a bit over the three months you shouldn't have any trouble. Some don't even ride that much. But if you're feeling nervous about it, find an empty carpark and practice your emergency stops and some turns.

    In the meantime enjoy yourself and stay upright
  3. gday trinity and welcome.

    bugger all i think is the answer. i didn't even have a bike before i went for my p's! i went for a couple of small group practice sessions at HART after my Ls, and one or two private lessons on the road with the guys down cheltenham way, and that was it :shock: i passed marginally, but i passed none-the-less!!!
