A few days ago I realised I had less than 72hrs to book my L's test or else I'd have to do my course all over again. Luckily I found a spot at the Liverpool RMS. Walked in not knowing what to expect. 49/50 and it was a pass. Now to buy a bike. I'm a cruiser type of bigger bloke and sports bikes while they appeal to me, I'd look like I was on a push bike with learners wheels. So I looked online and fell in love with the Yamaha V Star 650 Custom. 2 calls later and I was handing over my overtime savings. Bike was sitting at home for a good 2 days and all I could think of was WTF have I done? Are you crazy? I'm not made for bikes, how am I going to ride a bike, let a lone a 650! Called a friend and asked him to come by. He took me to the shops and a helmet was purchased. First seating... I better update my life insurance and super beneficiaries. Then a split second of courage and bang... On comes the helmet the key turns and I'm like quick lets do this before I change my mind. 2 minutes later and the training all comes back to me... All except the remembering to turn off my frigging blinker! 3 hours later I don't want to go home. I'm feeling like I'm 10 years younger, just with less hair and heavier. Yes, you may doubt yourself at the start and you may question if you should have it shouldn't have but, just do it, go for that first ride and you'll never look back! Can't wait for the sun to come up for my next ride!
