Hi All, I just got my motorcycle learners yesterday at the tender age of ..... 53! Have been a pillion on my husbands bike for years and with life settling down - kids grown etc, now seemed to be the time to see if I had the confidence to take control myself - gulp. After doing the Basic Learners course I am more confident and thoroughly enjoyed it! Will be practising now for the Advanced course but not too sure how I will go with having to do the U-turns. Don't know why they don't take into consideration the entire training course and rely on just a test at the end as I know I get very nervous with just the thought of a test. My husband has bought me a Honda CB125e second hand to learn on and says if I still enjoy riding after having my full licence about 12mths will look into getting something else with a bit more power. We shall have to wait and see Happy riding and safe travels everyone!!
