I haven't visited much here lately, and due to life's travails that'll likely continue for a little while. But I can't resist posting that I got my full licence today. Yay! That makes me some kind of motorcycle rider I reckon, even if still a baby one -- at 52 I started with some trepidation in a TAFE car park in May last year, and have covered about 20k kms since those first circuitous wobbles. I've a long way to go in terms of skills, but, well, I do intend to go a long way yet. To the newbies and potential newbies out there, young and old alike, get cracking. Take it steady(ish), learn as much as you can in those first enthusiastic months, stay humble (easier for some than others I know), and get some kms under your belt. Now I'm going to find a speed camera on the Pacific hway and go to and fro past it at 110 ('cause I've never been over 90 before naturally).
