Yet another Sydney learner Hi all, I should admit I cheated by posting in other forums before writing the intro note - was just holding off until I could get a decent picture of my bike. But, with all the bad weather it's currently sitting in my unlit garage, so never mind that! Anyway, I live in Sydney's north shore & got my license and bike a few weeks ago. It's a black VTR250 with about 8000kms on it. So far it's been fairly daunting riding on the roads since I work all day & only get a chance to ride either at night or in peak hour traffic, but I've managed to get enough practice on the backstreets to (hopefully) keep myself out of trouble. Aside from fantastic riding experience, I'm thoroughly looking forward to not giving lifts/being the dedicated driver for a change! So, thanks for everybody's help so far! Cheers, Hugh *Argh! I'm usually better at proofreading than this! Blame an exceptionally long day!
