Well, Got my first bike today, a CBR125. Just got home from my first ride... Gee's it's hard to type with shaky hands ha ha I am sooo disapointed in myself, I have been looking forward to this day for the last 3 weeks, while waiting for my bike to arrive. Anyway, I thought I'd leave my first time riding till night time so that there was less traffic on the road, still, unfortunatly where I live, I don't really have access to quiet streets without having to cross major roads. It took me about 5 minutes and two 'stalls' to get out of the driveway and onto the actual road, I rode across the road and down the street opposite my driveway. I managed to get to the end of that road and turn right but then stalled in the middle of the turn so I just pushed the bike over to the side of the road. Took my helmet off and had to sit there for a bit to get the courage up to get going again. After sitting there for about 10 minutes cursing myself for being such a wuss, I put my helmet back on, and continued about another 100 meters down to a footy oval carpark. There I had to stop again, got off and again cursed myself!! I stood there for a while just watching other cars go passed, inside I was quietly praying for a netrider member to come cruising along and say 'hey there, need any help' ha ha but alas, noone came! I got back on the bike, turned it around and slowely rode back up the road, and around the corner to home.... I am sooo disapointed, I was really hoping I'd do better than that and have the courage to keep going. Even though I totally failed - My heart is pounding so fast. I guess I'll try again tomorrow night, maybe at a later time when theres even less traffic. Hopefully I'll make it further and do better than up round the corner with 3 stalls and two rest/panic pit stops!
