New Learner from Sydney

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by Roguescholar, Apr 10, 2016.

  1. Hi everyone,

    I am a new learner from Sydney, previously I had done the pre-learner test (years ago), but never went through with the computer test.

    A friend who started riding about a year ago convinced me and a work colleague to go and do the motorcycle license.
    The work colleague and I did the pre-learners together (so much logistics to try and get the same days off work!) and now we are looking for bikes.

    I have an interest in all things so my thoughts have been moving between adventure and sportsbikes.
    Decisions, decisions...
  2. Welcome RoguescholarRoguescholar and yes decisions decisions, where possible sit/ride as many bikes you have in mind before making your final selection ;)
  3. Welcome to the forum, making a decision on which bike is for you is always an enjoyable but daunting task.
  4. G'day and welcome, RoguescholarRoguescholar - I like your forum handle. :]

    It's a nice problem to have but one that drives me a bit batty. Let us know what you get.

  6. I have not sorted out my gear yet.

    Have been to MCAS a few times to look at try on gear.

    I am most likely to go with a Dririder Nordic 2, and some Kevlar jeans. Haven't really looked at boots or gloves yet.

    But I have been reading a lot of forum posts and articles on bikes, and riding gear.

    I did like the Dririder urban hoodie, it felt really comfortable and movement was great, just didn't seem the best thing for going off at speed.
