Gday All, Just thought I would introduce myself as I have been lurking around this forum for about a month or so. Thank god for Google as I had to learn what ATTGAT and Squids were, sorry but I'am new to all the rider lingo as I'am to riding motor bikes. One day i thought gee i would like to learn to ride a bike before i get too old or kick the bucket, so off i went and did the RTA's L's course which i thought was good but could go into alot more detail but hey thats what the HART extra couse's are for. So I got my L's in early Oct and after alot of reading on hear and research I got a Suzuki GS500F as im a little tall and have well paid for Beer gut might need a little extra torque to get moving. After another 2 weeks or so of research I went and got my gear and are a firm believer of ATTGAT and I will not go out unless I'm covered from head to toe. So no I'm petrified on one hand and then also looking forward to actually getting and going for ride nice a slow until i get my confidence up. I have read most of the riding new tips so i hope to apply all of them and become a confident rider. Cheers Paul.
