To the noob I met briefly today,
I doubt you will read this.
Glad to see another bike on the road. I like that you wore a Learner "L" on your jacket. I didn't get a chance to ask you if you took a course. I got the sense that you had not.
You said that you had only had your license for 2 hours. Brother take it easy out there. Shoulder check. Shoulder check. Shoulder check.
Get some gear. Riding in runners and sport socks is not acceptable. Wear work boots if that's what you can afford.
