New Rider

  1. Hey all,

    Decided to get my licence late last year. Got my L's at the start of December and picked up a 2012 Suzuki GS500F in the new year. Bought it off a lady who had never really ridden it, had 450km's on the clock for $5,500.

    Since then I've done another 1500km's and passed my full licence test. I only had my L's for just over 3 months.

    Started riding to work, and got caught in very heavy rain at night which was terrifying.

    So off my L's but still very much a learner,

  2. Welcome along, Alistair.
    Where are you based?
  3. Thanks mate, in Melbourne, Heidelberg area.
  4. Welcome !
  5. Welcome to Nutrider!

    Come along to the learner practice session at St Kilda/Elwood (see the Victorian events section for the thread). I'm sure @hawklord@hawklord and @GreyBM@GreyBM will teach you a thing or two. :)
  6. Welcome :)
    Saturday practice....yep.
  7. Welcome Alistair,
    That first wet ride is always good for the nerves.

    Keep working at it, and enjoy.
