Passed my Q-ride today! R license. As part of the test we went on the motorway, scared the crap out of me, I guess 100kmh is going to take a bit of getting used to. Still feel like a noob, first place I parked at a shop was on a slope, so being a genius I parked nose in and cars ended up parking next to me, so I had to spastically turn the bike around, dispelling any illusion I was of the fonze ilk. Filled up at BP, managed to leave a glove in the shop Finally retrieved my glove, got myself ready to go, got on the bike.....doh keys in my jeans.....get off the bike.....take off my glove....get the keys... put them in the ignition put the glove back on....*sigh Was making a right turn at the lights from the left lane, but had to take the first left, was taking it easy but I can't believe someone actually tried to get up the inside because I was moving over in my own time and was obviously not quick enough for them. I'm quickly realising that there is alot for getting away and creating your own space, I actually felt better once I was staying ahead as it felt more on my terms. I had the odd car that would let me in, or give me room, but for the most part I was just in the way. I now treat all cars as bloody evil boxes of doom. :twisted: So if you see a gpx-250 with a noob rider in the Brisbane city area, give me a wave (after you've stopped laughing).
