    Hello all, ive always seen bikes as a quick way to the exit.
    Although for some reason ive always wanted one but thought I wouldnt last a month. Have a somewhat ordinary record on a pushie and its not getting any better.

    Then came along the movie TT closer to the edge. I know i will never be that good. But the opening sequence gives me goosebumps. Time and a place I know. But its now just too tempting so ive made the decision to get my Ls and a bike.

    Had to cancel one sesh for my Ls due to work so hopefully can get a new booking asap.
    Already have my heart set on a black 2012 ER6NL which I will ride for at least 2-3 years before anything fast. Modifying doesnt count. Feels a bit small but im not exactly bike size friendly at 115kgs. Sat on one other day at CMC. Dont think theres much bigger on Lams.

    Have read a few of posts for learners and they seem helpful.
    Anyway just thought id introduce myself.
    Any tips suggestions or otherwise any info is most welcome.

    Cheers.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    No need to refrain from any jokes.

    Booked in for wed so depending on how CMC go could be riding by the weekend.

    L plate rides sound good.

    End of April is not that far away .... I would say wait and get what you want instead of getting something you don't.

    Well after having a chat it looks like there are none available at the moment. So put my order in for a black one at CMC.
    Hopefully it wont be too long.
