The Saturday morning practice sessions are geared towards helping learners/new riders develop skills and confidence in a relaxed, safe and traffic free environment with exercises that include: * slow speed manouvering * cone weave & counter-steering * braking * basic cornering theory/practice These sessions are run by experienced riders - not instructors - who are willing to share their knowledge and experience in helping you develop the necessary skills to keep you safe and alive and are offered free of charge. There is a strong emphasis on one-on-one advice and there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions about all those things that might be worrying you. WHEN: every Saturday ... rain or shine! (unless notified before 8am in this thread) TIME/MEET POINT: 10:00 am, meet at the BP Petrol station, 54A Marine Parade, Elwood: (street view here). WHO: Aimed at learner/new riders but anyone who wants to brush up on the basics is welcome. There might be a short ride after the practice session depending on how folks are feeling. If a ride follows the practice session, it will be pitched at learner level and it is expected all riders will stay within the road rules, will stay within the group, that there will be no speeding, no stunts. Keep it simple and safe. If you want to come but don't feel confident about getting there on your own, please post in the thread and we'll try to find someone who lives nearby to ride there with you. Don't forget to post your suburb. BREAKING NEWS: There is now a breakfast meet at DJ's in St Kilda before the practice session for those who are up early enough.
