  1. At the risk of creating a monster, I am prepared to do a newbie and learner tag along ride this Saturday morning.

    I am Bayside, so I suggest to meet at the Woolworths servo in Wynnum Road Cannon Hill. There is a Pie shop and fuel/regular servo fare. From there I thought a cross town and up Mt Cootha from the back to the rotunda at the top for a chat and a lookout.

    Descend the straight way, around the back of Bardon to The Gap and traverse Mt Nebo to Mt Glorious Cafe for a bite and chat. Return via Mt Nebo to the city and Southside.

    If you need collecting, let me know. If you have experience and want to tag along and maybe pass some on you are most welcome.

    The entire ride will be conducted at or under all posted speed limits. The focus is on new riders becoming comfortable and getting a taste of what there is out there to be enjoyed.

  4. I think you may need to ask a moderator.

  10. I have a newbie I was going to bring, but he is still a little bit too green, so I am taking him before this ride to do some machine control skills, then make a judgement call from there. Don't panic then if I myself am running a little late :)

    I was planning on leaving the servo at 8:00am, so if you want to tuck into a pie or 6, aim to arrive around 7:40ish. Not really on a tim schedule, so don't stress too much. As long as I know you are coming, I will wait for you.

  11. We'll just do car park racing while we wait... or bike gymkana... anything besides pies and baked beans...:p
  12. I'm in. Looking forward to learning some road craft and bike etiquette.

    But mostly the gymkana ValvolineValvoline

  17. I would be keen for future learner days. Only got the bike today and am very green so don't think it's a good idea for me to tackle the mountains just yet.
  18. What you get? And keep an eye out for the next one.

  19. The Mercury was the pick of the styles in my opinion. Hope you got the disc brake rear end. Nothing wrong with a drum though. I like the solid limited lever travel feel.
