  1. Went on a great ride today courtesey of Tweet and his mate Dan. Thanks for a great day today guys..

    I cant even bloody remember where we went, only remember chasing down dan and his crazy bike!! Dan, I think your bike wants to getyou into trouble mate!!

    Very nice sharp twisties wherever we were... Still getting used to them. I did take one at a speed which had my heart in my mouth for a while but slowly learning to trust the bike and seems as though it really feels like theres more grip when you're at a lower angle.

    A Lesson for all those who are learners!! Put the bike into gear when on putting it on the stand... especially on a hill or it will spit the dummy and try to squash you like a bug into the ground.

    Alright, she survived with only the front mud guard cracked and scratched..

    Thanks again for helping this Learner get some k's guy's!!
  2. It was a great day thanks mate, tweet is always out there helping young guys get some km's up, think he really likes someone to ride with. you did well today Habibi, sorry about your drop, but i think i speak for all that when i say, it happens to all of us, i'd say 70% of drops happen in carparks. so dont worry, your not hurt and lesson learnt. also, just another lesson, dont try to keep up, best way to learn is at your own pace.... trust in that only you know how well you can ride and you know your own limits.. is ok to push your limits but try not to exceed them... it usually hurts, any time you want to go again. count me in... :cool:
  3. hey which road were you on between mittagong and picton?

    i ride the upper southern highlands a bit, and ride alot around picton and menangle park.
  4. lol when i first got my bike, i popped a mono accidental and my carry thing got damaged , but you learn from your mistakes.
  5. I haven't seen you around... Have you met the magpie just out of Picton, heading towards the cement factory yet? :LOL:
  6. What does that mean?? sorry but could you clarify.. is a mono the same as a wheelie? and your "carry thing"? what's that?
