    Hi All,

    I just sat my P's this weekend, having moved up from Canberra and switched from a daily Scooter commute to a CB500X late in the 12 months of 'L' time!

    I now spend my weekdays in Darlinghurst and commuting around Sydney - with Weekends around the Central Coast.

    I am older than most who start riding - but loving my 'mid-life crisis'!

    Really enjoy following the posts and forums and looking forward to learning lots!

    When I first got my 'L's' for me & my mates it was the very day you turned 16 years & 9 months, at about 8:02 am! :cool: (motor registry opened at 8 ).
