Okay, so as the topic says... So here's the context. I'm not even a newbie, I'm a pre learner thatched flunked both the learner and prelearner course, firstly due to nervousness, and second due to balance issues. In both cases, they sent me home early. I really don't want this to happen again to me. The instructors suggested for me to get out the Ol' push-bike, which I have. I've been practising over the long Easter weekend. So apart from the topic question of, how do I know when I have practiced enough on the push bike to have another go at tge prelearner course? I've also been practising to ride slow and fast, particularly around corners to try and get that lean effect. As well as doing that weaving thing where you weave in between witches hats in a straight line. Are these good things to practice? And can you think of any other related skills I can practice for the motorbike? Also, my hubby doesn't reckon I should even think of ringing up to book my lesson, because he thinks I look too uncomfortable on the push-bike. Thing is, I'm a nervous person, it probably took me a good two years to start even feeling comfortable with driving my car. Any words of advice or answers, suggestions, would be greatly appreciated. Sorry about the essay. :$ Thanks in advance.
