I see a lot of L riders, apparently get their L licence, buy a bike and go, " now, what do I do?" and they usually wobble off down the road hoping they don't get run over. At that point, "you have to ride enough to learn enough, to stay alive long enough to learn how to ride" So make a plan for yourselves. You know what you are not to good at and these need to be worked on immediately. You also need to get ALOT of practise on your controls. Write down a plan of action. Pin on the wall or something, and methodically work through each of them until you are competent with them. Do this in car parks!, or closed industrial estates. But make a sensible plan and get competent with one thing before you tackle the next, but ultimately know the controls with confidence, and then start to venture out onto the roads, where it will now be far less daunting for you. You learn nothing while your brain is overloaded, you are stressed, and riding like a numpty, surrounded by cars, in suburbia. Again...sit down, and make a considered approach to your riding by making a actual list on a piece of paper, and stick to it! Obviously, this not directed at all L riders, but the real inexperienced L riders. If you think car park work is for losers, then NOTE...experienced riders hit the car parks if something is bothering them, and they want to focus on it without interruption. It's real easy to get cocky if you know 'a bit', and just as easy look like a complete tosser by letting your ego decide what you do. You can still ride on the road a bit, but realize your very limited abilities and stay honest with your self. You've seen those riders...working the traffic like a maestro. Unflappable, controlled, vigilant, but relaxed. THAT IS YOUR AIM. And you won't get there just aimlessly riding around, with believe that it will all just come to you. Yeah it will - after 10 yrs or so, but you need to be there in a matter of a few months. Having a planned approach, supercharges your learning and consolidation.
