New Learner from Tassie

  1. Hello, my name is Simon and I've recently bought a Yamaha MT-03 and am learning to ride. So far it's been great, I've only clocked up about 500km so far mostly commuting to work but I feel like I'm learning new things every time I ride.

  2. Welcome!

  11. Welcome to the land of the possessed:)
    Mate youre living in a great place for riding. Been there once and coming back again end of Feb. Make the time and the effort to go for some serious bike training such as superbike school. Worth every cent as most people who've done it will tell you. Lots of good info on the newbie sections of this forum. Keep learning and ride to your limits, and there are no stupid questions when learning riding skills. Stay safe and enjoy the beautiful riding that Tassie offers.

  12. What he said! Sideling is awesome, but can be gravel and log trucks.

    If taking a wander through Weldsborough pass, watch out for moss on the rd, particularly after a mild winter. It takes no prisoners.

  13. lol i was gonna mention that one too, but it's a bit further out.... be VERY careful on both sets of twisties between scottsdale and st helens.... but once you're up for it it's an EXCELLENT day loop back through st mary's pass and the fingal valley... even with 50km of slabbing on the end (you'll be tired by then anyway)
