Greetings All, Happy New Year. I am a long time lurker at Netrider, browsing the forums and getting a feel for the biking community. After years of wanting to ride a motorcycle, the riding bug has really bitten me hard so I have finally taken the first steps into getting a license -taking lessons with an accredited trainer. Generally I am a head man, but heart has won this round. I know my physical limitations, and the lessons have proven them correct. I am a complete unko on the bike, with a few sphincter clenching moments already. Head says with more training I can get better. Head also says I should plan for a major fall. TBH I am not sure how far I will progress on the license. Hopefully to full license. There are so many competing claims on time, money and GF factor, that getting a bike will be a major achievement. In the meantime it is one step at a time, getting my L's.
