Post time to learn how to ride
Afternoon all, Just been told about this great forum. I first jumped on a bike after turning 40, some 10 months ago.
Love the dirt but have absolutely no skills and spend more time sitting in the mud then riding through it.
Based near Ipswich, I have done a few rides up at Beerburrum with a couple mates and look forward to more rides soon with any other beginners interested. Updated to a ktm250exc recently from the drz400 with the plan on improving that skill level.
Hello to panhead_pete, the boys I know said you are getting back into riding so feel free to catch up for a ride.
Ride safe but get dirty.
Craig

Thanks for the welcome guys
501 - your pics for Jack's fundraiser ride look a bit more challenging than the beginner ride Dave said he was organising - sorry I missed it as out of town
SAFF - I am used to getting up pretty early to meet the boys I know at Beerburrum - takes me about 1.5hrs to the beginner carpark. Picking my bike up from shop this week so very keen to ride on Sunday (been out of town the last 3 weekends), but a couple of the boys I know doing the Cooyar ride and I have to work Saturday.
As new to TRA - I have not been granted access to personal messages yet. I always keen to ride just finding the time my problem.

Post Re: time to learn how to ride
Yeah sorry mate, not trying to step on anyones toes, PM rides are not a great idea usually. But I do know that when I first started riding, 2 guys on here took me for a couple of PM rides and taught me the basics. Never actually thanked them for it but they are the reason I didn't throw it in and sell my bike. Not saying that PM rides are the way to go, but sometimes when you're starting out and still learning the basics, riding with a big group can be overwhelming. But now, having re-read your first post and noticing you have been riding for 10 months, a beginners ride would be the way to go.

HOPEFULLY if work doesnt go to crap I have 3 weeks off from the 25th and will post another ride like the other week. Sounds like just the ticket.

Thanks gents for the protocol
Hopefully will post a beginner ride for Sunday, just waiting on parts to arrive at the shop so can get the bike back - promised Friday, mind you he also said that about being ready last Friday

Wish I took it to him, problem is he mon-fri 8.30-4.30 most days
I work 6.30-4.30/5.30 most days, so tried someone else who opens Saturdays. Second mechanic to let me down.
In future, will take long lunch brakes to get to Seventeen Mile rocks
Thanks for reminding me

hi all
Andrew, I am sure it will not be long before I break something again, so sure you will hear from me soon enough
KTM Craig, someone out my way, lucky or unlucky you? - do you go up to Beerburrum much? I was intending sometime soon down the track to also post a ride out at "Gap creek farmstay - Maryvale" might even make it a weekend as cheap camping. I have been told no where legal in Ipswich we can ride.
If you know spots, I am all ears as have a registered bike
Parts due on my bike tomorrow, so if he confirms arrived, I will post a beginner ride Tomorrow night for Sunday up at Beerrburrum
Be good all or get into trouble and have fun
