I did my road ride test on Thursday at Brookside. The weather was terrible. Raining and had no wet weather gear. Long story short, there were 5 of us going for our licence. We had a brief discussion before the instructors arrived. We were all seemed a bit nervous given the conditions and our lack of experience. We were hoping we wouldn't have to go on the highway in the 100 zone given the lack of visibility and all the other factors I'm sure you're all aware of. We were then told we might not have to. But we did. Toughen up and all that sort of jazz I thought. It's gonna happen some day anyway. During the ride 2 of us were dropped off while one of the instructors went back to attend an accident. We waited about 40 minutes after which we rode straight back to home base. As it turns out one of the guys hit a guard rail going down the highway doing 100 (or there abouts), didn't countersteer and kept leaning but still went along the railing. Slid for a couple of hundred metres and luckily stopped before hitting a bus. Last I heard he was ok with a small hole in his elbow. No doubt he will be a bit sore over the next few days. If you (sorry don't remember your name) or any of the others on the ride read this, I hope you're ok and if/when you book in to do it again - cancel if it rains I personally found it quite nerve racking as Q-Ride was my first time on a motorbike. The rest of us passed our tests and now have licences.
