New rider in Melbourne

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by 3800Chris, Sep 23, 2015.

  1. Hello!

    I've been riding for a few years in the USA. I started on a GSXR600, then moved up to a Ducati 999 Superbike which I've been riding for 2 years. I bought a DRZ400 this year as well which I have been loving.

    I just moved to Melbourne temporarily for the next 6 months or so. I bought a CBR 600RR last weekend and it should be done with roadworthy inspection this weekend. I'm hoping to take her out for some cruises and meet other riders as well.

    I've seen there are some beginner rides on Saturdays which I thought would be a great place to start. I go on regular "spirited" group rides back in the US, but I think it's a good idea to start slow and get used to the other side of the road here first.

    Are there group rides that head out from around Melbourne?
