Fifteen men on a dead man's chest Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum Drink and the devil had done for the rest Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum. Well, the startling statistic is that 22% of the accidents on road are associated with motorcycles even though they account for 1% of the registered vehicles on-road --- the RTA instructor drilled this into us as we started off our course. He is trying to get us all to get the right posture and the right techniques... My name is SUB and i have been trying hard to get all the basics right so that i do not become a statistic and i urge all fellow learner riders to do the same too... I have inherited a suzuki vl250 intruder as i wish to continue down the cruiser way of things and am quite happy about it... The first day of learner rider training has been quite productive so far but i will need a lot of practise so that i do not make mistakes... I am quite happy that there is a forum like netrider that helps out newbies because i feel that getting the right techniques down to a pat and practising with someone around to point out your mistakes are very crucial to staying alive on the roads.. I am hoping to avail of the resources made available by the various members to become an excellent rider. btw, my expertise is in computing, economics and start-ups, so anyone that needs help in those areas is welcome to approach me !
