Rich06FJR1300 Posted October 29, 2007 Share Posted October 29, 2007 i'm in australia! melbourne area (that's the southeastern side). My father passed away over last weekend so i had to visit. Anyway, i'm learning to drive on the left side of the road. What stress! Plus the driving side is on the right side of the car! So its definitely a twist on the usual routine from going from A to B. So far no incidents but my dad owned this toyota diesel (which his 2nd wife now owns)that i'm driving around in. This is a manual transmission so i'm learning to shift with my left hand LOL....i keep having to remind myself to stay on the left. Then with the shifting, i'm finding i'm putting the stick into the wrong gear...but usually catch it and quickly get it into the proper gear. As they say down here, "no worries". I was thinking of renting a motorcycle (or motorbike as they call it) but with learning curve of driving, don't want to even attempt riding yet. There's a bmw/guzzi dealer in melbourne and was thinking of checking the bikes out though. Link to comment
