Well Sat arvo arrived and we headed off to see if she thought riding was for her. She has spend a lot of time as a pillion over the years but never at the front of the seat. To see someone you love nervous and excited at the same time was a bit difficult and I offered to sit in the car. She didn't want that so up at the fence I stood. First off this is the clutch, this is the front brake, this is the rear brake. Second, a demo of clutch control (she has always driven manuals). She tries it half a dozen times with not one stall or over rev. The instructor looks at me and smiles. Next: Clutch, ride 10 meters and stop using rear brake (that's the leaver in front of the RH peg dear) Do this another half a dozen times. No stalls or wobbles. Instructor happy. Husband rapt. Next: Start, ride 10m change into second and do big slow laps of the area. Stop after a while and do the same but go the other way. Within an hour Mrs 2wheelsagain was doing figure 8's through cones. I half expected her to drop the CB250 back to first and pop a mono! So now we're on the hunt for a used ZZR250. I cant talk her into a GPX and she is booked in for her learners this Friday. We'll be doing a lot of practice in side streets and dead end industrial areas before letting loose in traffic but she picked up the basics very quickly. If anyone is thinking about riding. Do the pre learners and see how you go.
