Hi all, I've never so much as sat on a bike, but it looks like a bit of fun so I'll give it a go. Looking to do my learners course soon, HART in Somerton would be the closest, and I've read nothing but good about them. What are the chances of a completely new rider passing the course first time? I do drive a manual car which may or may not help. I plan on heading to Aldi next week to pick up some gear, at least a jacket, maybe more. Then start searching for a bike.
