Did you know that if you're a learner and you have a hi-viz yellow leather jacket, you still have to wear a hi-viz vest over it? I asked this question of my instructor at HART. He thought about it for a couple of moments, and then his eyes watered as he fought back his mirth and croaked out: "...Yes." So not only is my ride back from the dealer on the 19th going to be terrifying, I am going to be flaming yellow. Two layers of yellow. I have decided that my battle cry (as I ride something that goes over 40km/h for the first time in my life) will be: "I AM REDUNDANCY MAANNNN!" So now you're going to know who to look for at these Learner Group rides: some hilariously over-vizzed noob with on a red VTR250. I'm a very experienced cyclist, but have never gotten my car license. This is basically because I got into a car to try to learn how to drive and immediately became this: So now I am just barely certified to pilot a high-speed horse-rocket through the streets of Melbourne in a high stakes game of Frogger. I'm sure I will be on Netrider a lot as the kilometers roll in and I slowly morph into a portly old gent sailing resplendent on his cruiser down interstate freeways, mustache rippling in the breeze, visor tinted by the rising sun. That is... assuming I make it home from the dealership. We'll see about that one. Here's my bike! Greetings, Netrider Forums. I am in you.
