ok this isn't about going slow on a bike. it's about how fast people, including myself, took to learn to ride a bike. I am getting really good at the riding and changing gears and all I need to learn, according to the instructor, is how to counter-steer through corner at speed - 80km so I am told, overtaking traffic (same direction traffic that is), and to change lanes without looking over my shoulder more than once - apparently looking more than once is a "sign of incompetance" and I need to work on this. I would like know more tips on riding too if you guys and gals could help out. I only need 2 to 3 hours more riding tutorial and then I can go for my license as I was told by the instructor, which I hope is all it takes as I cant wait to ride unrestricted and on my own. Is it scary the first time?
