Hi all, I just passed my learners test through HART today. Not sure if any of the posters around here are HART trainers, but I seriously had the best guys during the weekend. I dropped the bike a few times (hence the bruises!!) and although I was fine, my confidence really took a hammering for the minutes following, but they were extremely encouraging and patient. I even thought about not taking the test and going home, but after carefully listening to their tips, and really thinking about my technique and actions, I somehow managed to pass with relative ease! The interesting thing is that a few of the more "confident" (read: overconfident) ones failed. Still under no illusions about my readiness for the road though, so I'll be reading these pages a lot. Please don't mind if I don't post much to start off with, I don't think I'll have much to add! More reading and learning. Unfortunately my cousin stacked his bike a fortnight ago, so now I don't have a bike to practice on before I buy my own or go for my licence. Big big setback. Look forward to learning more from everyone.
