I'm currently just over 2 months into getting my new bike and I go for my P's soon.. The problem is that my brother just got his license too and I've been trying to go riding with him to get his confidence up. It's been very frustrating and I feel like I'm endangering myself for his sake. He won't stop looking down at his speedo which makes him take forever to get up to speed, making me have to keep looking behind me to make sure he's still there and ok or didn't stall at the lights etc.. He's also either riding very far, sometimes 50-100 meters away, or very very close when I tell him to stay near me. I am not speeding, albeit i'm getting up to the speed limit as quickly as I can, something which he has yet to learn to do. I've asked him to go riding by himself in traffic to learn how to keep a safe distance in traffic so we don't have these problems. What to you guy's think? Am I being unreasonable/impatient, or should he balls up and go round the block a few times till he's got confidence on his bike.
