Firstly, hello everyone. I have been reading this forum for a while and have found many of the entries very helpful as i have gone about buying a bike and getting my L's. Now i have been riding for a month and a half and have clocked up about 300km. I would still classify myself as very much a beginner and so far i have only been sticking to local roads, to and from work, and havent even gone into anything over an 80kph zone yet. One thing that has surprised me a bit is the treatment you get from some cars (cages i think is the term here). The majority have been fine but everynow and then i keep coming across some fool that pulls a really dangerous move, cutting in etc. I had never noticed this so much when i drive my cage. But on a bike of course, you really do notice. I have been learning how important it is to hold your position on the road, seems that if you give some of them the slightest hint of moving right or left they want to try come up along side! Of course i knew there would be a bit of this but its just that in my experience so far its been a bit more prevalent then i had predicted. Have others noticed any factors about riding that they were a bit surprised about?
