so long story short. My mrs wants her licence, 1st lesson she dropped bike and just putted around, no issue I gave her heaps of encouragement to keep going. Lesson two, by the end of it the instructor took her for a ride but she panicked going wide and powered which sent her on opposite side of road on top of a crest. This was worrying, what happens when she hits a bend and freezes, but I encouraged her to stick with it. Todays lesson we went back to square one, she couldn't even take off, the instructor ended up pillioning her so she could watch. However the wind became 40+ and he abandoned the lesson and re booked for next week. How do I encourage her, when I don't think she is suited to ride? I can't be realistic and talk to her about thinking if it is right as she gets defensive and angry. It doesn't help that she is shitty that I just got on the bike, had 4 lessons and aced my practical test. She thinks it should be easier than it is. Tomorrow I am going to get her to tell me how to take off whilst I am on my bike. Each step etc, then show her how to take off, but in all honesty I am just not sure she is right for it and encouraging her to percevere is just dangerous, but I need to encourage her for her own confidence.
