new rider from SA

  1. Hey everyone, names Vu - just picked up my learners a few days ago along with an immaculate blue 2010 Ninja 250R just about straight after... like within the hour after!

    Never ridden a motorbike in my life before doing the 2x half day course and only riding within 30km/h max and using max of 3rd gear during the course I was pretty nervous riding the bike home for the first time and it was during peak hour too! Sure enough, made it home un-scathed, kept up with the traffic and it was pretty fine actually!

    Previously had a 310kw R32 GTR and although this bike is only a 250cc LAMS bike I'm having so much more fun than I ever did in the GTR and I've only been riding around the suburbs/City and within the speed limits and my own! Best move ever going from 4 wheels to 2 :dance:

    and what's with the lack of an SA sub-forum? Looks like the most that ever happens in SA is coffee nights!!!??? :LOL:
  2. Welcome to NR Vu, first thign I would suggest is get Oggie Nobs for the bike !!!
