  1. Was cruising around the streets around the South West Sydney area, getting to learn my bike, learn the physics ect...



    And came across a couple of riders today, I got a Head Nod from both! :grin:
    Dunno what else to call it! But made me feel all warm and fuzzy in the center! :grin:

    I'm still on a high for being a learner and crusing around peak hour in my area, didn't feel stressed, kept alert and watched the traffic. Really enjoyed it. Can't wait for a cruise with other netriders some weekend, Might even try and organise one.

    Anyone have any advise on organising a ride one day?

  4. If you want to organise a ride, best place would be in the NSW rides forum towards the top of the index. Just try to get some details together before you post to avoid questions :grin:

    And yeah, nods all round to everyone. The only time I don't nod is when I don't notice the other guy until too late, or he looks like a gang member or something. Nodding is just done. Its a family type thing I think :)

  15. I have not been riding for that long, im on my P's currently.
    But i have noticed when you see a group of bikes - not a gang, but just like all mates riding toghter they dont seem to nod.
    But when you see 1 or 2 they usally nod.

    You get a few rejections though lol :p

  17. Was it the straight up and down nod or the fully awesome sideways nod? :dance:


    the other day I gave a guy who was stuck in traffic the nod, he was on one of those factory motard type BMW things and he gave me the [-(
    I thought that was pretty uncalled for, so I gave him a nice friendly hand signal back. He's probably a cop or he's seen me riding like a tool in the past.

    Nice to get a nod, but nicer to get a beer!!!
