    Definitely - the more you practice, the more comfortable you will be and the manoeuvres will become second nature.
    Come MOST day, it wont be a "test", just you showing competence to the instructor

    Alright then. A couple people have expressed interest in a MOST practice session. I'll post something in the consolidated practice thread, but I'm thinking 2pm Saturday, at Bruce?

    Haha, I'm not putting anything on, am hoping to learn a whole bunch at it myself, or at least have people around to laugh with.

    2pm at Bruce sounds good to me. I'll try and drag a couple of experienced rider buddies along to help us noobs.

    Nice. I'm in Melbourne this weekend, but I'll also do another session Saturday next week if there's interest :).

    I'm hoping to head out for my first big bike trip that day long weekend!! Will depend on the weather, though.

    Im happy to come out to Bruce on Saturday at 1400 and give you guys some pointers and run through the test. One of the guys did it for me so its only right I return the favour ;)

    Does anyone have a set of cones they can bring out?

    If someone has some, but we can probably get by with 6-8 cones

    I can have a look, used to coach soccer, so should have something in the garage. I'll have a look when I get home tonight, will confirm.

    Not so sure on the tennis ball front, but will also look around for those.

    Yeah I've been keeping my eye on the events page recently for one of the MOST practise sessions to come up. I'd like to come out and join in the fun as well. Sis and Bro-in-law may also join in as well! :)

    I'm reliably informed I do have cones. I'll throw some in a backpack or something, and see people at 1400 at Bruce CIT

    Hey great work today guys. I was the late arrival on the DRZ. Thanks heaps all for the pointers. It was a hike from Queanbo, but well worth it! I'm booked for my test on 28th Oct so plenty of time for practice!

    It was a good turnout. Thanks all, and thanks in particular to the experienced guys who came to help out, and to who brought the cones. Cheers.

    Hey guys,

    Thanks all for showing up, especially given it was a pretty short notice affair.
    I don't know about you, but it was definitely good for me.
