Sorry for another possibly boring thread. But I went for my first ride out on the open road today, though it was only to Melton. I felt really comfortable and once I got over the first bit of nervousness I was fine. I went out via taylors lakes and back via diggers rest and the freeway. So quite a bit at 100-110 km. I am finally starting to get a bit more confident. Does any other newbies get nervous before heading out? Is this normal?? Each time I go for a ride im a bit jittery. Good once on the bike. But I was thinking "is this normal?" There were lots of bikes out and about today. Beautiful day for it.
