I've Finally Done It

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by nodz, Feb 11, 2005.

  1. Well I've finally done it
    I bought a bike mid January
    I got my L's late January
    I finally got the bike insurance sorted out yesterday
    And this afternoon I went out for my first ride on my bike on the road and managed to control it (although a couple of gear changes were a bit dodgy) and I got up to 68kmph in a 70km zone.
    Not a bad effort I thought, perhaps a little tame compared with some of you speedsters out there but I thought I did well and man were the bugs out in force. I also made it back safely after riding to the local supermarket and back.
    I'm hooked and the feeling rocks.
    Thanks to all that made it happen

  19. Went on more rides today. Once to a newsagents at 6:30am, once to the local shops at about 9:00am and once to the major shopping centre (Fountain Gate) at 11:00. Each time the traffic was different (building). Doesn't sound like much but I've now travelled about 40Kms in that time. With any luck there'll be another trip to the shopping centre tomorrow, so the experience will do me good.
