Hi There, I am new to riding, having just passed my L's recently, at the age of 40. Was surprised to see that at least half the class at my L's were also of the older bent, all with their reasons for wanting to join the ranks of the enlightened. Some were going on trips to Bali, and wanted to at least know how to ride before taking on that storm, others had been paddock bashing in their youth (like me), and had always lacked the time/money/willpower to go and get that bike for the road. A month ago I got my first, a bright yellow dinky Hyosung GT250. Have been out and about in the traffic of Melbourne on the odd occasion, and am really looking forward to the longer rides out in the country. Are there any other late starters out there, interested in taking on the Sunday learner rides?
