    Jeez its been over a year since I jumped on a bike for the first time. Its nearing winter with all the lovely weather so today I did the run that was done by what seems most people on Sunday. I really wish CMC had some new gear in.

    Got my Ps few months ago with the real credit going to Heidi and David. Its funny how stuff sticks in your head when you come up to something new on the road with a little voice giving you instructions.

    Anyway going down Brindabella Rd after the dirt turnaround I came across a very pissed off but alive L later on the side of the road. Id passed his riding bud going up on a KLR650. I saw him throwing his gloves on the ground as I was pulling up. He looked okay and he said he was. Looked more shaken up then anything. His riding bud arrived about 5 min later. It looked like hed straightened up and shot straight across a bend hit some gravel and ditched it. Was very lucky it was one of the corners there wasn't a dropoff and nothing big to hit. Also looked like he was chasing not riding his own ride. Bikes probably a write off but I didn't want to say anything at the time. Was bent up pretty badly. Poor kwaka.

    For all noob learners get yourself along to any learner sessions. They really are life saving lessons learnt in a safe environment rather then having to learn the hard way.

    Anyway I would just like to say a big thanks to the people on this forum. Im still learning heaps and really really enjoying it. Actually don't think I could now go without a bike.
