New again, looking for mentor in Point Cook

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by SuzGirl, Jan 27, 2015.

  1. Hey, I'm a returned but 'rusty' female rider (51) originally from WA, looking for a mature experienced rider willing to mentor me for an hour or so while I get my nerve back on the road. It's been a few years and I'm hankering to take my new Suzuki 650 Gladius out beyond the comfort zone of the immediate neighbourhood (Point Cook). I need to rebuild my confidence getting out there again with an experienced (and patient) mentor rider.

    This lists the mentors and the areas they cover.

    Hope to see you out at one of the practice sessions or group rides!!

    If you need someone to ride into a practice session with I'm available as a buddy. I'm located in Tarneit!

  5. Hey Juz,
    Getting myself used to this site. I could do with a buddy to get me to a practice session/group ride first time up. It's been a while and I've not ridden in Melbourne before - hate being a 'girl about it, but it won't take me long once I get out there again. When and where's the next practice session? Would love to go.
  6. Hi Suzgirl and welcome.

    Generally practice is held every Saturday morning in Elwood/St Kilda. Go to THIS thread for more information. Convention for the site is generally on a regular event or ride the first post gives you the details so you don't have to wade through the near on 15,000 posts in that thread. :)
