QRide complete - I'm Licenced!!!! WOOO HOOO!!!

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' at netrider.net.au started by ~DadAgain~, Jun 26, 2008.

  1. Finally - after months of waiting and occassional outings I'm now the proud holder of a full open licence and can take my bike out for a spin whenever I want (or whenever missus allows :roll: ).



    Had a great ride this mornign to finish off the Qride out from through Samford and Dayboro. Was really great to get some speed and feel the coolness of 100kmh.

    I can see now I'm going to be continually finding excuses to go out: "Need anything from the shops?" .. "Should I take this video back?" etc etc etc!! lol

    :grin: :grin: :grin:

    and this morning I commuted in on my bike - totally awesome

    A new mastercard add:

    Lots of entry level motorcycle gear: $700
    Extensive training: $600
    insurance: $200
    Sweet looking ZZR: $3500
    Riding past the poor stressed out souls waiting at the bus stop at 6:30am with engine screaming at 10,000rpm: PRICELESS!!!! :grin: :grin: :grin:

  8. Great stuff mate :)

    I take it from the location of your check out ride you went with Morgan & Wacker at Brookside? That's where I did my Q Ride last year :p

    And I can relate to your feeling of happiness. I was forever jumping on the bike and heading to the shops given even the smallest hint from the wife. I also found myself riding home from work and thinking "stuff it" and going past my place and just riding around aimlessly to get some time on the bike. Sad I know, but I did it :)
