G'day, I'm a 22 yr old from Adelaide and I'll be doing my L's test next weekend and getting a bike shortly after that. Looking at a Hyo simply because I don't think I'd fit on any other cheap learner bike (believe me I've heard plenty of strong opinions for them so no need to add anymore). After months of parents and some of the more caring friends saying it's too dangerous on a bike and me shrugging it off saying there's danger everywhere etc. my boss at work finally put some fear into me through some stories (possibly made up). I figure this is a good thing, but I don't want it to overcome me and ruin my chance of enjoying myself. My question is basically how did you get passed your fear?
