So I've been lurking around the forum for a little while now, reading most of the sticky threads in this part of the forum - they've been super helpful, so thanks! After tooling around on dirt/trail bikes for a little bit (which I love), I decided to finally get my L's back in October (my hubby did the A4DE last year and I thought having a license made sense). I live in a country town, which is pretty quiet, so I've been getting around town (to the shop/gym etc) on a TTR250, which has been great for learning and building on the skills learned at the 'Stay Upright' course. I recently decided to sell a couple of my old cars and get a road bike - which I have I went with a 2000 Kawasaki GPX with 38,000kms on the clock. Happy days. The town I live in is close to Canberra (about 50kms away). Obviously to get there I have to travel on the Highway...on my L's... doing only 80kms an hour. Now, I'm no boy racer, I'm a mid-thirties mother of 2, so doing 80 is no problem for me (especially seeing as the GPX is infinitely more comfy at 80+ than the TTR on road legal knobbies!) My question is then, do I just get out there and do the Hwy drive and not worry about other motorists? Or do I look for opportunities to let cars overtake where I can? The Hwy in question is a notorious 'black spot' and to my mind, drivers frustrated at L-Platers (regardless of vehicle type) are more likely to be a little more reckless in their effort to overtake and get past. With young kids, I guess I have slightly more patience than most, but even I find myself getting pretty frustrated on that Hwy with L-platers (in cars generally) who seem oblivious to the 15-20 cars behind them! Any advice for a Hwy novice!?
