Well, comenced the first day of the Learner course on Wednesday, bought my first bike on Wednesday night, completed the second day of the course on Thursday and bought all the riding gear on Friday. Saturday I went for my first ride on my new bike. (CBR250RR) Initially it was to the end of the street and back which went okay. I then went into the house, got a drink of water and decided to head out again for another 3 min ride. As I thought I would be home in 3mins I didnt bring my phone or wallet. It was then twice around the block and off to mum and dads house (10 mins away) for a coffee. After showing them the bike I went to AF2Af3's house to show them the new aquisition which promptly turned into a 146km 2.5 hour ride through the Adelaide Hills including dodging a big black cow that had wandered onto the road. Got home at 5.30 with the dog wondering where hell I went!!!! What a day, what a week Just want to take this opportunity to thank Mark for all his encouragement and tuition on riding. Thanks Mate, today would not have been possible with out you.
