PostSubject: New rider, hope to ride with you soon   Sat Jun 27 2009, 13:54

Hi all you guys. I met some of you at Mt White last Sunday [the "splinter group"? It's all good.] I'm riding a Kawasaki ZZR250. I have had my licence for nine weeks now! Time flies. I take one or two long rides every weekend, and ride every day for my work, which requires a lot of city driving. I've always known everyone else on the road is out to get me, but boy have my eyes been opened since riding a bike. My brother was killed on his bike and I can now see exactly how it happened. Ooops, I'm probably not supposed to be having a waffle here. Just wanted to say hi, I would love to go for a ride with you all some time, though I am only allowed to go 80km/hr at the mo coz I'm on my L's. I probably won't be posting a pic of my bike because it is held together with duct tape...she aint the prettiness thang. Cheers.

Welcome mate. Sorry to hear that news about your brother. You are very welcome here. Aside from rides we also have functions now and then and that would be a good way to get to know you. Some rides also suit L platers so we will see you out there. Take care. The only one you can trust is Trevor. He's a top bloke.

Thank you very much for you kind words about my brother. He was a brilliant, gentle, funny, compassionate bloke, you would have loved him...just like I did. Thanks also for your kindness toward L platers...it gave me a warm fuzzy feeling inside...I hope I haven't got worms tongue Do you think the Putty Rd ride tomorrow would be suitable for me, or would it be impossible for me to keep up? I can't go more than 80km/hr but, and I'm not saying anything here, my learner instructor nicknamed me "Rossi" cheers Exclamation

Welcome to the madness that we share, we all feel the loss of a fellow rider so to you and your family our condolences

The Putty is a challenge for most but I would not say it can't be done by a learner rider, the ride makes for a long day so maintaining concentration and riding to your ability and that of your bike are the keys

Thanks for your kind sentiments Coda. I miss my brother and very excellent friend. I find I get pretty sore doing Mt Victoria or Wollembi so think that this ride might be just a tad too long for my old bones. I am going to see if I can join the splinter group doing the old road, wisemans, cattai. Hope to ride with you soon. Very Happy

I agree, and also the drivers who see you (apparent eye contact) but seem to look "through" you, and can come out of a side street at just the wrong time. I always slow down a fair bit at every intersection even if it looks clear. It might be overdoing it a bit, but 1/3 of all accidents happen at intersections, so you can narrow your odds quite a bit.

OI, just cause your stuck on a mower is no need to have a go at the splinters Laughing

Welcome 63special, I hope to see you out there soon. This site is a great place to learn.

The first weekend ride I did (first real twisties) was on a putty run with these guys and I found it not too bad. I dropped behind a fair bit at the start, but by the end of the day was keeping up much better (amazing how quick you learn). Though I must say I wasn't worried about speeding.

You are welcome to come with the 'splinter group' if you want though
