  1. Alright, hows it going?

    I'm 22 and new to riding, currently on a VTR250 and been on my Ls for 2 months but for a long time before that I've been in love with riding (it started when I played Road Rash as a kid). As the weather has been mostly crap recently a lot of my practice has involved riding in the wet. Also, for the last few weeks I've been riding up to the CBD to get a taste for busy city riding.

    I was so jealous of seeing riders out there while I was stuck in my boring cage, especially when I saw with ease how they went past everyone in rush hour traffic jams.

    The only thing is I don't know anyone else who rides so I find myself rather lonely out there.

  2. Welcome to Netrider . you will find a number of riders on here from S/E Mel have a look at the Ride and events thread :)

    Oh and some good people run a Practice session on sat mornings were you can meet new people around the same skill level .

  7. Yep, come along. There's a thread for it in the VIC section (damn, forgot to copy it again..). All skill levels go to this - new riders up to very experienced. Everyone has a really good time, and it's a good opportunity to meet plenty of new riders.

    ETA: Thread here.
