  13. Having looked at the route I have decided not to go on this ride. Too much highway riding which is damn frustrating when limited to 80kph. :(

  14. Learner?

    They have a marshel who sit at the back and never passes the last person.

    Yea the whole 80/90 speed limit is just stupid. Anything which allows trucks to overtake bikers is just a joke. On these rides L's and P's usually nudge the signposted limit with everyone else.

    I've even been on the princess highway with my L on, sitting in the left lane doing the signposted 110. Saw a highway patrol move up behind me. Thought "shit, they already know im doing more than 80, no point doing something dangerous like grabbing the brakes". They sat there for a few seconds then moved on.

    Maybe I got them on a good day.

    Its such a big group, I wouldnt worry about getting done for speeding if you stay with the group.

  15. Sounds like a good opportunity to come on my first group ride.
    Is anyone located near Seven Hills interested in meeting up for the ride down to Heathcote Maccas?

  16. or in short, stick behind Matrix, then you're no longer limited to 80kph :LOL:

  17. Hey should be up for it......also on Ls but hopefully on Ps by Sun........goin for Ps on fri :grin: But yeah ive been on highways doin signposted speed.....in my humble opinion its safer(as long as the rider feels confident at those speeds!) especially on a bike wen cagers seem to have trouble seeing us at the best of times! .......neways ill shutup now :p


    Im near seven hillsish(im rouse hill) so yeah might be easier to meet up. Just let us know where ya wanna meet n stuff.......PM me or somethin?
    Also my first group ride!

  19. Hmm, I hear ya but I not only have my learner bike license at stake but also my full driving license. One risk too many on the bike that invites points means I lose both, can't afford for that to happen.

    So for now I am being the old fart riding around like a saint until I at least get my P's and have some points to play with.
