I got my learners on Saturday. What a great feeling. Did it at Ride-tek. The guys there are very funny and laid-back. Since then I've been riding my Hyosung around the local streets. At first I was wondering "where should I go to practice" - and then I remembered that there are really cool roads just around the corner. Particularly some lovely low-speed twisty roads around the local parks - really nice blind bends that are posted with 30km/h warning signs. Great for practicing finding a line at low speed away from traffic. But the problem I couldn't get around was at the top of my street. I live on a hill, that gets very steep right at the top. I just couldn't get the bike to move without stalling, or rolling backwards. It's so steep that it's too heavy to hold the bike up with just my feet. So, somehow I have to use the brake, but transition through the clutch friction point while releasing the brake. How do you guys start from a stop when you are going up a steep hill?
