New user here.. I just picked up my learners' on Wednesday and as per licensing procedure I am only able to ride under the watchful eye of fully licensed individuals. I know a couple guys, one of which rides track-only; the other few I don't expect to take me cruising around the city at sub-60km/h speed all the time.
I was fortunate enough today to be taken by one of my friends, along with two other very experienced riders, out to ubc.. it was my first ride out of my building underground (within which I am practicing u-turns etc). Sufficed to say I had a great time, and would really like to make one trip per day out somewhere with someone who doesn't mind keeping things leisurely and slow.
While some instruction would be nice, I am signed up for action's may 12 class and will likely learn the core skills then, but having bought a bike yesterday, I am eager to get out now and start slow.
While I have ridden dirt bikes a lot in the past, I plan to get into street riding slowly and safely. I'm not out to prove anything, I am simply eager to learn and experience.
I'd like to find a person, or persons, interested in going out with me (taking me out, heh) for non-highway rides.. if anyone is interested please pm me or email me at email@example.com.
