  1. Hi, everyone. I got my learners in June and bought myself a honda cbr250r. I haven't been out on the roads as yet coz I'm too scared to ride out there on my own. Is there anyone that would come riding with me, so that I can follow and gain confidence[/quote]

  2. Hi ivana. welcome to NR.

    may i ask where abouts viewbank is?
    im trying to get my friend to start riding, could possibly set up a double lesson.
  3. [/QUOTE]View Bank, is near greensborough, macleod, rosanna, heidelberg.
  4. Well, Ivana, welcome to motorcycling, and to Netrider, motorcycling's true headquarters. Someone's going to mentor Ivana, surely :grin:
  5. welcome ivana... from what i see there is lots of riders in Vic on here so am sure someone will step up an give you a hand :)
  6. Hi Ivana, Im sure there would be someone over your side of town who could give you a hand. If not gimme a yell and ill cruise over. Just dont ask Loz. :LOL:
  7. View bank, I lived there for about 11 years, nice suburb.
  8. Hi and welcome Ivana.

  14. Welcome Ivana, netrider is a great place and I'm sure you will be able to find a mentor, just keep us posted about all your riding stories. :)
  15. Hi and welcome Ivana,

    You'll be on the roads in no time. When I started I had a friend riding behind - keeping cars off my rear. I was able to go at my own pace and not worry about tailgaiters. Maybe this will help when you find a mentor. Im.on.it is a good rider - he'll be able to help you. It's all about practice and building your confidence.

    All you need is here at Netrider :grin: :grin:

  16. Heloo and welcome to the forums...

  19. Hi Stewy,

    Where is the learners ride happening and what time on Sat.

    Hopefully not early coz I hate mornings.

  20. Heres the thread about the learner ride......has details of leaving time, route etc... but yeah it's out in south gippy and starts around 10.30 i think.

    As for the morning yep i know what you mean, they are hard to get for thats why i never make the early rides :LOL:
