G'Day all, I have been stalking for a while and have been very impressed with the support and advice given on this site. I'm another newby, on the older side (mid 40's) and have finally found the "one day" that I will learn to ride (I'm sure there are some others like me who have been meaning to learn to ride since their teens but never seem to fine the time, money etc). I have been looking around at bikes trying to work out what I wanted/needed for the journey through L's and P's, after much deliberation and umming and ahhing, I finally settled on a new CB400. I have signed the contract and now have to wait a week to pick it up, needless to say I can't wait ! Seeing as though I am in the middle of Sydney I'm going to get it delivered, can't quite work up the courage to ride it out of the showroom into traffic. I'm pretty lucky as there is a huge sports field car park about 300m down the road and I luckily have time off during the week when it is empty to practice in. I also only have to cross the river and I am at the Homebush practice range, so I look forward to meeting some of you come the new year. Waiting, waiting, did I mention I'm not very patient !
