G'day guys. Well after completing the L course on the weekend, today was the lucky day that I got to go and pick up my bike. Now I'll be honest, I was very nervous. I had only ridden at the course and the max speed was 25km/h and I was going to be riding 45km home at speeds of up to 100km/h. After the sales guy (nice fellow) said his final goodbyes I took off nervously from the dealership. I pulled around the corner and just had a good play with changing gears and getting a feel for the friction point. My journey consisted of roadworks, suburban traffic lights and 100km/h highways. Much to my surpise, it wasn't nearly as stressful as I thought. Once I got home, I thought I need some more of this. So headed out towards to Brindabellas and Namadji to have a play in the twisties. It was a great learning experience and I really tried to practice setting up for the corners and looking through them. I almost ran over a brown snake, which was a little scary but we both survived unscathed. I'm looking forward to heading out tomorrow for more fun.
