  1. Hey everyone!

    Im Aaron, im from WA, and I JUST got my L's yesterday :D

    Went for my frist ride today on my dad's scooter, and it was scary to say the least!

    I was turning a corner, and I didn't turn enough and ended up ploughing into someone's flowerbed :S I have a fear of if I lean over too much that i'm going to fall over... As a consequence of that I dont turn enough! Could anyone give me ways of overcoming this fear?

    Even when I used to ride bikes when I was little (the pedal variety), I never leant over too much... :(

    Anyway, on a lighter note, I hope to meet everyone soon! :D

  2. Hey Aaron, welcome to the many voices of wisdom that is NR! :grin:

    Congrats on getting your Ls, well done, now get out into a vacant carpark
    (after hrs) and practice those TURNS!! Lots of 'em! :p

    Oh, and even before that, also head on over to the "New Riders and Riding Tips" and start reading! :LOL:

  5. Hi Aaron,

    Welcome to NR.

    Head over to the New Riders and Riding Tips forum - lots of great advice there.

    I agree with all above, read up in the new riders forum. As a new rider myself, I can tell you now, it's the perfect place for some light reading and there are great tips from the very experienced people.
