New Rider Vic

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' at netrider.net.au started by Red Rocket, Dec 20, 2015.

  1. New netrider poster long time reader. Got my learners couple months back & am going for my licence next month. Bought myself a Xmas present, brand new red cbr500r from freestyle honda. So happy. First ride went to Arthur's Seat to take shine off new tyres, bed brakes in & seat new rings properly. Absolutely loving it. Why did I wait so long

  2. Welcome to the Forum Red Rocket, as you probably know take care on the Arthurs Seat road for cars crossing the centre line on corners particularly when the are coming downhill and you uphill. Very popular bike the CBR500, I am sure it will give you many hours of fun riding.

    Once the peak tourist season is over make the run to Sorrento and then cross on the ferry and do the Great Ocean Road. A great run. Also make your way to Saturday Morning Practice in Elwood/St Kilda to meet some of the gang.

  5. Thanks cjvfr. I'm working 12-14hrs every thu, fri, sat, sun night at the moment but hopefully in January or feb can pop down St Kilda/Elwood & meet some of the crew, would be great. Thanks for the invite. Everyone I'm meeting are nice & similar interest doesn't get much better. 2 wheels

  6. Makes it difficult to catch up on group rides, we have tried in the past to get some mid week day rides up and going for the weekend workers but have not had much success. Keep an eye on the Victoria Ride Announcements section and over the Christmas break there may be some rides that you can make.

  11. I agree cjvfr sometimes it is difficult but I'll keep eye on events & if all else fails I might have to take day off work, it is all about priorities after all!!

    Lady In Red
    I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight,
    I've never seen you shine so bright,
    I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance,
    They're looking for a little romance, given half a chance,
    And I have never seen that dress you're wearing,
    Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes,
    I have been blind;
    The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek,
    There's nobody here, it's just you and me,
    It's where I want to be,
    But I hardly know this beauty by my side,
    I'll never forget the way you look tonight;
    I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight,
    I've never seen you shine so bright, you were amazing,
    I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side,
    And when you turned to me and smiled, it took my breath away,
    And I have never had such a feeling,
    Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight;
    The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek,
    There's nobody here, it's just you and me,
    It's where I want to be,
    But I hardly know this beauty by my side,
    I'll never forget the way you look tonight;
    I never will forget the way you look tonight...
    The lady in red, the lady in red,
    The lady in red, my lady in red,
    I love you...
