Well after a month of waiting I finally had my first lesson today. First time I had ridden on a bike and it felt good. Thankyou to all the posters here for the tips, I found that i already knew a lot of the things you have to be wary of the first time you ride. Did a few laps of an empty car-park and just got the feel of turning the bike and starting and stopping. Didn't get out of first gear but it still felt quick haha. The hardest thing I found was just the throttle control and keeping it at a constant rev level. Can't wait for my next lesson, I'm hooked!
