I have just returned to riding after a 10 year gap and this weekend hired the FZ6. I thought I had refreshed enough through one on one lessons over the last few weekends. The 10 year gap in my riding was largely due to my very nervous husband who just did not like the thought of me riding - so imagine my bloody horror when I drop the bike right in front of him whilst turning into our driveway . Not done my confidence a lot of good (not too mention my wallet as I scratched up the paint work). I have realised that despite that fact my license says I am a fully fledged rider I am back on my P's. Spent today in a deserted industrial area practising basics with my husband following at safe distance in his car! Definitely not the best start, still these humiliation make us stronger right?
