Hi all... Been reading netrider for a while now with out signing up (call me a stalker). I finally decided to take the leap tonight after talking with a friend of mine about going out for a ride or two following him and watching his technique up to build my cornering confidence taking the track to and from Watson's Bay... Then in a bit of a coincidence, I came across the EastRider's Monday meets followed by the occasional ride to Watson's Bay. A sign? I thought so. About my ride and riding, with out trying to give my life story. I got my L's Feb '07 and my P's in August... I didn't do a hell of a lot of riding before my P's so I failed my first attempt. As far as the ride itself, I've got a 2002 Aprilia RS125 that I got off eBay for more than what I should have paid, but less than getting totally shafted (should have known better). I've come off my bike twice, both at very low speed and with only a minor scratch or two for me and the bike. I'll write a post about them in a different thread soon. Hope to keep posting, meeting and chatting.
