Got my MT03 delivered last night. Sadly was too dark for me to comfortably head out. Anyway today was the day. First stop was to fill up...$15 wow (1/2 tank). Went out to Wedderburn (NSW). Stalled a couple of times on the steep hill there just after the causeway (those who know the area should know the spot), good for hill start practise though haha. Cornering seems ok, at least I stayed on, kept to the recommended speed limit so didn't walk it, just need to watch where I am in the corner as with one corner I was too close to centre line. Also just need to do better with gears as I was in too high a gear a couple of times and the bike was shuddering and struggling. There was one point where going down to first didn't fix it, not enough revs I suppose, so just stopped and started fresh. Got up to 70km/h (legal) and WOW it was awesome. I took some of the lesson to heart, even remembering to just tap the brakes when slowing so any vehicles behind can see I'm slowing down. A council truck behind me gave me plenty of space, must be a rider So far 14km, sadly I have some uni work and errands to run (which needs the car...can't bring a freezer home on a bike) and it's starting to rain. So far I feel it was a good start. Next job is to tackle roundabouts since there are so many in my area.
