Brand new to riding after 10+ years as a driver. Moving suburbs in the near future means I need a cheap, efficient way to commute 40km of mostly highway each day. So, I enrolled on a two-day QRide course. Day one was spent in a car park, repeatedly stalling during the practice exercises, whilst the challenge was fun the realism of my skill level was dejecting. Day two brought about magic transformation whereby I’d become master of the clutch, completing all exercises without issue and becoming eligible for same day on-road assessment. Any other traffic instilled a sensation of supreme vulnerability but I was content on the empty road sections. What felt like 15 minutes of riding turned out to be an hour and a half. My riding was competent so I am now RE open. I now term today ‘day three’ and it brings with it a strange longing for a motorcycle of my own. Bearing in mind this was always the plan, it’s advanced six months’ within 24 hours to the point I’m now watching 6 bikes online and plan to hit the showrooms on the weekend. I really hold the desire to go out and ride more, if only to practice and gain confidence. Is this normal? Will it get worse? Can someone lend me money?
