After moving to Sydney from Melbourne, here are the main facets I've learnt from life in Sydney: 1. There are some lovely roads here, some real twisties, but you'll never get out of 1st gear on any of them because of the immense amount of traffic congestion... 2. Cagers mostly obey bus lanes and keep out of them, but ignore transit lanes every time... 3. No riders wear gloves. I feel like I'm the only rider wearing leather GP gloves. Do you think you're invincible if you tumble? 4. The BMW riders here have this lovely habit of moving to the middle of two lanes to split, but then not splitting and just blocking it up. Why? 5. Every learner bike, that isn't a scooter, is a goddamned black Ninja 250 with an atrocious yoshi/similar pipe on it. To those of you with this setup: it's like putting a 'fully sick' spoiler on your mum's tarago and thinking it's cool. It's not. Save your pennies for your next bike instead of spending it on obnoxious pipes. /rant.
