Just needed somewhere to tell likeminded folk. Doing my pre-learners this weekend and going ok. I keep dropping the clutch changing gears, but other than that I think I'm doing fine. Just need to practice the gear shifts. I'm the only newbie in the group of 5. 2 dirt bike riders who've been riding since 3 feet tall, and 2 older guys whose licenses lapsed and are forced to do learners again.
