    Hi Eddie,

    I'm another that did their MOST on a cruiser (VT750)
    If you'd like some help practising, or just want to see someone do the test on a cruiser, give me a yell.
    I never did quite get the cone weave myself, but good enough to pass.

    Keep your eyes on the Learner League as well, as we run Learners Practise sessions out at EPIC.
    Even before you get your bike, feel free to come on out... and there are always cruisers in the group practising... you can watch, make some friends, and start refining what you think you want to buy!

    Then once you have a bike definitely come back and join in, and as you have already commented on... will be great to see you come along L/P friendly rides too.

    Coffee Nights are another great source of information. We get bikes of all shapes and sizes, and often various sized cruisers.... and there are alot of CR folk that you can chat to about their experiences.

    David, where exactly is this. I have ridden out there a few times and not seen anyone.. I am not a canberra local so not sure exactly where I am supposed to be looking?

    we use the carpark behind the grandstand (off Flemington Rd)

    Happy to meet you out there if you want to know where it is before our next planned Learner Session (11 or 12 Aug) to show you were the elements of the MOST are if you want.

    Not to hijack the thread [MENTION=23043]DJY[/MENTION], but have the MOST markings been repainted? I was there today having a little play and couldn't keep track of what was where!

    Not yet Rhi...

    there are a few options that I've heard of (but not of course officially involved with at all)

    * Someone is checking with the official EPIC point of contact...
    * A professional may also have something in mind...
    * A team of ninjas also is potentially considering their options as well.

    your 'right turn' is actually a 'left turn' gazman... and it is in the same half of the carpark as the rest of the markings.

    G,day mate. :welcome!:

    Passed mine on my VT750 shadow but did take a lot of practice ( thanks Heidi and Dave) if you in the market check mine out on my profile I am upgrading to what I think is a real bike ( Harley custom wide arse Fat Boy) and am happy to let it go for what i was offered on a trade in. PM me and i will let you go for a blast on it.

    Insert Harley Insults Here>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    I'll be trying to get out to EPIC each of the next few days as my Ls are soon running out. I've been out there twice already, managed to get the u-turn about five times in a row the first time I was there but then moved on to something else and have found the u-turn just about impossible since! Anyone want to meet up and practice together, or any experienced riders want to come down and give us learners a few tips?

    shoot me a PM or an email (see signature) with when you were thinking of... and I might be able to help out.

    Tomorrow is possible, but Sunday I'm hoping to head up to Wakefield. I am around next week as well though...

    next learners session will be next weekend 11/12 Aug most likely as well.
