    I left Geelong and got to Torquay at about 10AM with 30kms on the trip meter, now there's 186kms :D

    I got my learners at the end of January and got my bike at the start of February. Since then I've gone 1183kms on it. I've been enjoying life a lot more since then and have started meeting people with the same interest, and when I go to normal places like the supermarket random people come up and talk to me and kids in cars wave to me. This is FUN!!!

    I didn't take many pics, I was having too much fun in the corners!!! :D:D:D

    I went with a guy who contacted me on the motorcycle forum I haunt, I'd never spoken to him on there before but I decided to go with the flow anyway and it turned out to be a great day. The guy was responsible and there was no being stupid on the bikes, you have enough fun going the speed limit anyway. I'd never ridden on that road before, but there weren't any problems... even though I had to be careful when I hit a 300 meter patch of loose gravel in a corner. :lol:

    The social aspect of motorcycling is really good, who says you need to talk to each other to have fun? Haha. We had lunch after that and that went well too, having lunch with a person you've never met before that day could be awkward but it wasn't, having a common interest helps a lot! Someone else from the same forum has contacted me and I'll be traveling the same road with them next week. :p

    Here are the pics I took, my bike is the black and silver one with the really annoying "L" plate on the back:

    Push bikes are fun too, they're just not as fast :)

    I think I'd have a heart attack if I tried to ride a push bike up a hill, it's been a while :)

    I used to ride pushies downhill, there was one really steep hill that I liked but I had to be careful with it because it had tree roots sticking out of the ground and I'd get up a decent speed. I also rode that bike down stairs and over dirt jumps... that was fun :D

    You have to come too when you get a scooter, just be sure to get one that can get up to 100kms without blowing up the engine :D


    I always remember that. Maybe I should get one like this:

    Braaaaiiiiiiiiiiiin bucket!!!

    I'm gonna do that ride when I get a bigger bike, in a few months ( I Hope). Looks awesome, nothing is better then cruising on a bike, looks like you had good weather too!! I do most my riding at night and it always rains on me.
