  1. hi everyone,

    I started riding earlier this year and im LOVING it! At the moment i'm just riding a postie (..not a REAL bike :grin: ), but am looking to order a ninja 250r (..a REAL bike :LOL: ..) in the next couple of weeks.

    Going for my Ps this Sunday, fingers crossed!!

    Been reading the forums for a few months now, thought its about time i joined in!
  2. welcome..good luck on your test :) cant wait to go for my P's lol
  3. Welcome!!

    The trusty old postie hey, nothing to be ashamed of..the fact that your on 2 wheels is all that matters :grin:

    Goodluck with your P's! theres plenty of tips amongst the new rider section. You should be fine.
  4. thanks for the welcome guys!

    I love the postie! I recommend it highly as a beginners bike, especially if you have had zero experience with bikes (..like me!!).

    But i'm ready to take on something a little bigger and faster, the postie struggles to hit 70 and by the time ive crossed an intersection i have had to make 3 gear changes (..not that gear changes are hard on a postie :grin: )

    I've been scouring the forums for tips and been practising, just have to control the nerves!!
  5. Welcome Aboard !!!
    Nothin wrong with a postie ... thousands of postal worker can't be wrong eh
  6. Welcome to NR ninjagirl :grin:

    Good luck with your P's.
  7. does the postie bike qualify as a manual bike for your P's test?
  8. Welcome to the forums and good luck with your P's test this Sunday. :)
  9. Yeah its still considered a manual bike, as you still have to physically shift through the gears. The bike just doesn't have a manual clutch (..which is a good thing for a total newbie :LOL: )
  10. yep don't under estate the postie......got a mate and his wife riding them up the cape :shock:

    welcome to the crazy 2 wheeled world
  11. I saw a new baby Ninja the other day and it must have had the pipe replaced cos OMG my jaw dropped when i heard it. Sounded very nice. I didn't think it was a 250 until I saw the P plate. Wish my Across had a better exhaust now.

    The baby Ninja is a nice choice for a new rider. I'm sure you'll like it and will enjoy coming along to some NR rides.

  12. Welcome from "new guy from Bendigo". Sounds like a copyright infringement to me. :wink: Enjoy your riding.
