'Practice' on 50cc Scooter?

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by [JD], May 18, 2010.

  1. 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?
  2. All time on two wheels is valuable. If it's there, do it.
