  1. Hello,
    My name is Bree & I'm new to Melbourne. So far I have been on two rides (ride for the hills & Thurs night) & met some wonderful people. Currently I ride a k8 gsxr600 but still a bit wonky after an accident a few years back.
    Anyway, I'm looking forward to meeting you guys and making new riding buddies. And trying to figure out this right turn from a left lane thing in the city! :shock:

    (The shy one in the corner biting her nails) :oops:
  2. Welcome Bree. Hook turns are not as hard as they appear. Don't stress, you'll get it.
  3. Hi Bree and welcome. If you managed to handle the Ride for the Hills you should be right riding in a group. :) Have a think about coming on the Chocolate Mill ride.

    Good roads and chocolate as a reward at the end. That should entice anyone. ;)

    Hook turns are a strange Melbourne thing, they can be a bit daunting at first but you will get used to them.
  4. Welcome to netrider bree :)

  6. thanks guys.
    I have just moved to Altona. The chocolate factory ride sounds enticing :grin:
  7. Welcome to Melbourne Bree - great place to live and has some pretty good riding country within easy reach as a bonus.
    Above all else though welcome to the hallowed and hushed :shock: halls of NR.
    One more thing - Why Mudbunny? The mind boggles :!:
  8. Gal to gal, welcome, Bree :grin:

    If you're brave enough to have a go at the Thursday MR and Melb's weird hook turns',
    you shouldn't be the one in the 'corner' biting her nails :wink:
  9. Hi Bree. Welcome to NR.
