New Rider from San Diego!

Hello G310 forum! I'm a fairly new rider, received my licence last year and purchased a G310R in October of 2018. Because of a few technical difficulties I hadn't put much mileage down, but have gotten into riding a couple times a week in the last month. Goal is to get to commuting everyday on the little G310R but I'm not quite there yet skill wise. Just been practicing my stop and goes, slow speed maneuvers, etc.

I'm looking forward to putting many more miles down and some of you have already helped me with that(my fender eliminator LED problem). So I'd just like to say hello and thanks for being such a great resource for the bike and rider

Welcome Smurf07, nice bike and good to read you're taking a careful approach. 'Accidents hide in small corners' we say in Holland. I also commute daily, in LA, and it's perfectly do-able, especially in this Southern California climate.

Welcome! I'm also a new rider on a 310r. Take your time and get comfortable. So far, my experience is that almost all drivers in SoCal are pretty cool about sharing the road.

Welcome to the forum! You can never get too much practise on an empty parking lot. I'm doing that at the moment with my wife who got her motorcycle learners licence, stop go and low speed tight turns.

Thank you! And yep, I hit up my local high school or shopping mall and do lowspeed maneuvers, simulate stopping at a stop sign, etc at least once a week. Also been practicing stop and go on a hill as that was like my biggest fear once I got licensed haha.
