So, upon the suggestion of a newly-acquired motorcycling friend, I've decided to sneak on here a little and establish myself a bit before I start going for my Learners or anything. A bit early? Perhaps, but then if I mess anything up or need help, I know I've got somewhere to go. As for about me, I originally hail from Brisbane but moved to Canberra for uni, and I've just gotten sick and tired of the unreliable bus system (Brissy wasn't much better but the services ran MUCH later). Unable to have someone sit beside me in a car and hold my hand while I learn, I figured going for a motorcycle licence couldn't hurt, right? Initially I thought I'd just get a scooter, but the thought of actually owning a bike is much more appealing, so I'll go down that route, much to the displeasure of my folks. (I like the idea of one day riding back up north and surprising them. Wishful thinking, perhaps.) After uni exams, I intend on going for my pre-learner course with a friend who is also keen on getting her licence, so I'll be able to let everyone know how that goes! Until then all I can really do is window shop for bikes, cry about my height, and hope that through posting on here I'll make a couple of new friends who might even be in a similar position as me. Yeah.
