New rider in Sydney

  1. Hi all,

    Just thought I'd introduce myself. My name is James and I've recently picked up my Ls.

    Previously had an Evo 8 and currently drive an XR5 Turbo... but I thought I'd try my hand at bikes.

    It was a rough start - I'd never ridden a motorbike before, and it has been 10 years since I'd been on a bicycle - I failed the course twice (stepped off both times :() but finally got through... third time's a charm :)

    Picked up a new CBF250 and have been riding for a little under a month. Started just around local quiet streets at first, but have tried my hand at more major local roads and some freeway riding as well.

    I get advice from a more experienced rider than I at work, but forums are a great resource as well... so I thought I'd join :)
  2. Welcome to NR James - it's a great resource with plenty of very experiencd people to help.

  3. Hey James, nice to intro yourself. Hope to catch you around.

  6. Hey James,

  7. Thanks for the warm welcome all. I'll be sure to come to some practice sessions soon.

    I was going to post a poorly taken photo of my bike... but I need to build up my post count. lol
  8. Welcome James. In a few months you'll look back at your first rides a giggle insanely!!
