So, i just got upto the second day of the pre-learner course at Botany in Sydney and failed half-way through Is there a better place to do it in Sydney, one where the instructor doesn't completely abuse the **** out of you and actually speaks so he can be understood!!? I had never ridden a bike, haven't driven a manual car ever, nor have i ridden a push bike since i was a child. It didn't take long to pick up balance and gear changing wasn't too hard. I did however stall a couple of times when starting the bike on the second day (i had received a much larger bike than the previous day and i'm quite short plus the clutch seemed to be much further out for me on this bike). Not one warning, and i wasn't the only person who stalled, then the next minute "Ok off the bike and gear off")... Opps sorry, this turned into somewhat of a vent but my original question still stands, where have you been for pre-learners in Sydney and are they all abusive ****s?
