Well, after getting my L's end of last October I have been practicing, practicing, practicing! Have been going well in traffic, had a couple of short night rides, and have been for a few longer (for me) rides with hubby. He is still helping me heaps and giving me tips on riding, braking, gear changing, traffic etc, and still doing a good job of it. I was a bit concerned about the slow riding and cone maneuvers needed for the advanced test in SA, so I actually rang the Ridersafe people and they told me the correct measurements / times / speed etc for the test. Also, gave me a few more tips on using back brake only for the u-turns - haven't had a problem with that since. My hubby then went over to the car park near our house where I have been practicing and sprayed a few dots and lines for me to practice with (my own personal test area LOL). He has been saying for a little while he thinks I am ready and I should book in for the test but that only got my nerves going, anyway I did book in today for a couple of weeks time and thought I would give it a go and see what happens. That's about it for now, so for the next couple weeks it will be ....... Yep that's right - practice, practice, practice. cheers til next time.
