Well I am Antipodean albeit not Aussie, but I do feel the downunder attitude to motorcycling is more pragmatic than many on this forum. I was four years riding around the farm before I got my full licence, less than a month after I turned 15...... no mucking around back then.

Coming from off road, you will know about bikes and how to ride them; adapting skills to the road is not a biggie. Learning to deal with traffic is another thing. Even if you have been driving a while, riding on the road you will soon find you see things from a different point of view....... and car drivers often don't seem to see you at all.

Welcome!

The main advantage us dirtbike riders and racers have when we make the transition is we ride with our legs (as one should) and dont have the stability problems so often mentioned on here.
