Hi all Yep I've finaally gone & done it. I got my Learners a few weeks ago and purchased a 2000 Virago. My 20 year old daughter got her learners on the same day. I never told my son or family members until after. When I dragged the old push bike out for a little bit of balance practice before the learners course my sister told me I was too old for that nonsense. Imagine her response when I told her about the learners. All in all though most people have been positive. I did have a couple of "incidences" though doing the learners. The first I just fell off sideways and discovered what it was like to be winded. Will never complain about my footy players when they don't get back up staright afterwards any more. The second fall was more spectacular, involving going off the course, running into a snall tree and kissing the concrete wall with the side of the helmet. My daughter had a couple of falls as well so we became known as the stunt riders of the group. The instructors suggested I switch to a scooter. My ribs, legs and most other things were hurting more than my pride so I completed the course on a scooter, but I did get my learners. So I think I better stick close to home & get plenty of practice on the bike before venturing too far. So if you see a little old lady with her Virago on its side it's probably gonna be me. So please stop & help or just say hi.
