New noobie rider looking for noobie mates - Balwyn/Kew area

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by bvyrz, Sep 16, 2011.

  1. Hi guys,

    Been on Netrider for a while but only just recently bought my first bike. I'm currently on my L's and was just wondering if anyone is interested in catching up for a ride either at nights or on weekends to skill up? I'm in the Balwyn/Kew area...

    Let me know! Would love to meet new noobies like me :LOL:

    (posted this in another part but was told theres more people here!)
  2. Welcome to NR.
    https://netrider.net.au/forums/showthread.php?t=115150 is where most learner go on a Sat morning for practice and making friends. IF your new to roads and need an escort plenty of people happy to help if you ask in that thread.
    I go to Kew every now and again to practice cornering on Yarra Blvd. I am no speed demon just like to practice there
  3. Thanks! I'll definitely join the sat guys soon :grin:
  4. Hi khy and welcome to NR.

    Sat practice is a good way to meet other riders of a similar standard. Depending on your skills you may also think about the Sunday Learner's ride. Just do not do it before you are ready or it's a recipe for disaster. Again if you go to Sat practice they can advise you on whether or not you are up to standard yet.

    The other good place to meet people is one of the coffee nights.
  5. Thanks heaps Grey!
    I've been reading the threads for the Sat rides; very excited bout joining in.
    Was thinking of joining the Tuesday night ones after work some time too ;)
  6. Hey i'm in Balwyn too, maybe we could ride down together on sat?
  7. ey buddy, glad to see another Balwyn person on here. Can't go this Sat; bikes getting a new tire... got a puncture... but I'll def take up the offer when I'm back on
  8. G'day mate, im just down the rd in Camberwell and am just starting out as well. Im thinking of going this coming saturday morning to the session in elwood, so maybe we could meet up and ride down together?
  9. Hey Buddy! Good to see another 'neighbour' :grin:

    I'm still waiting on my type to get fixed; probably wont be able to make it this week; but i'll PM you when I can?
