Hi Ho Everybody, Hello from the - currently - wet Gold Coast. Anyone need some rain where they are? I'd be happy to send you some. Most of the time I spend at home reading and watching DVD's. I plan to subscribe to a motorcycle magazine in the next few weeks as well. I have had my learners for a few months but I have only had one 3-hour lesson with Australian Motorcycle Academy. The best thing for me is that my brother is paying for the lessons. His and mine. It's not cheap either. Ever since I passed the written test, I have been researching motorcycles and apparel. I CAN'T WAIT TO GO SHOPPING!!! I have been getting estimates from websites and working on my budget. I figure I'll have my licence within the next 4 to 5 weeks, after that I figure I'll start buying bits and pieces a little at a time. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone I can here and getting together with some of you here on the Gold Coast eventually. Ciao!
