So I have my bike now and I am in a dilemma. I want to practice the basics (clutch control, braking etc) I live at the end of a very quiet culdesac that is S shaped and a roundabout. My dilemma is the fact I am not permitted on the road without someone who has ridden for 4+ years, but the likely hood of a police car coming down here is about as much as being struck by lightning. Given the quietness of the street and the fact at most I will do 20kph, do you reckon I should practice quietly or resist that urge? I have absolutely no intention of riding around the city alone, just quietly practicing in street.
