Had my L's since April and a bike for a few weeks. I've been out and about on short bursts just picking up skills - love it! I've actually been riding around a new estate just practising things; cornering, hill starts, doing circles in the t-intersections there... Pretty much just getting used to the bike (zx-2r) and riding in general. I'd like to know what the best way of learning is though! Sounds stupid but i don't want to pick up bad habits, not knowing what bad habits are! Lets face it the L's test and course is rubbish. I hadn't been on 2 wheels before that day and didn't find it hard at all. So do i just get out there like i've been doing or are there things i should be practising to improve on or what? I've been around the local neighbourhood and find the bike good, but it's very different to the car obviously! What i'm unsure about the most is speed. I have no feel for speed on the bike. I could drive my car blind and tell you what speed i was going by the sound and feel, but find the need to look at the gauges on the bike to know where i'm at. This translates into me not really know what is an appropriate speed to corner at and taking my eyes off the road where i feel it's better they are! Is more time in the saddle the only way to compensate or are there any pointers? I'm trying to get out whenever i can, and have used traffic to gauge speed, but we all know how much that varies between drivers too. What are the most common things new riders do wrong (i'll eventually get into the habit of turning indicators off!)? I don't want to be another idiot on 2 wheels oblivious to my surrounds ticking off other road users and giving riders a bad name!
