Pre-learners half done

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by MrBaggins, Dec 14, 2013.

  1. 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.
  2. Good stuff. :) I struggled with slipping the clutch smoothly - too many years of my mother screeching "don't ride the clutch" when I was a teenager learning to drive an old ute.

    Good luck with day 2.
