Hey guys, unfortunately the monday ride was cancelled due to rain but anyone keen for a ride saturday morning? Prob leave at like midday or something. Anyone know any good routes easy for beginners but still challenging for the more experienced riders. Did my first long distance run in heavy traffic yesterday:clap: was a bit nerve racking since it was raining and the wind was blowing me the hell around on the motorway but still good practice. Did lots of clutch control practice haha. Anyway I would love to cruise saturday if anyone is keen. Hope the hols are treating you all well :rockon:.

Peace n ride safe

ok, so here's where we put up a date in big red letters, get el presidente (squiggles) to send out emails, and tell everyone there's a "learners" ride this saturday 12pm, meeting on symonds st, all skills and sizes welcome - experienced riders to help new riders and teach 'em some tips/tricks of keeping the bike upright. no hooning and no motorway sections. route to be confirmed, but suggested cruise along the waterfront to mission bay, head up into the suburbs and have a muck around maybe?

I am keen to come and meet you guys. I am staff, not student, at the Uni, and got to do a job at Student Health on Sat morning, so I will try to nail it. Meeting in front of the Rec centre?

Fuck it. Its a perfect day for a ride, and I have to take the bloody car to work cos the fucken bike won't start! Turns over but won't fire. So it doesn't look like I will be able to join you guys, unless a miracle happens. Next time....

Haha carbacca means that nishs stunt double is me. Supposedly i look like a miniature version of him. I've never met him but when he comes back from his trip I will. lol I think Carbacca has been impressed with power to weight to freaking pocket rocket nature of my little two smoker.
