Hey dudes/dudettes, hope you all had a great new years. Anyone keen to ride this upcoming sat. I've had enough time to sit on my ass and do nothing plus it would be nice to get out of the city for another ride. So I'm posting early to give all a chance to figure their plans out but I reckon a learner friendly ride would be mint! I'm bringing a drink bottle since last times 2 hours (read 5 hours actual time lol!) ride was pretty intense. As a post up on my riding learning experience i'm starting to get more confident in corners without pushing too hard. A noob question though, the front and back wheels of my RG150 seems to pick up every rut in the road and when leaning if i hit a patch or really bad road the front starts to shudder and stuff. Do i relax and let the bike compensate itself or is there another way to get around this. Hope to ride with you all soon.

Be safe, Drider.

I'm there if I can organise a new pair of tyres by then.

I see you are having a lot of stability issues. What you should do is get someone who is experienced to give your bike a good thrashing around a few corners, and they will know if something is wrong with it.

i'm keen to come, probably on the fxr.... maybe have a swap for 5 minutes and see if it's bike or rider

i just avoid ruts and rough surfaces, they can often cause problems especially on the lighter bike with narrow tyres
