So as I mentioned in other threads I am a complete novice and WifeFace has been riding a scooter to work for about a year now. We are both set on doing Q-Ride later in the year, probably August/September as I have to go to the UK soon for a family wedding. I am wondering if you folks can see any value in me getting myself some protective gear and having a go on the scooter? Will it make going into Q-Ride easier if I have a go at two wheels albeit it an automatic 50cc thing? OR am I likely just to pick myself some bad habits, not to mention looking silly and probably crushing the poor thing under my considerable bulk?
