Crazy day yesterday
Decided I had to scratch an itch I've had for literally years – took the plunge and did my CBT. Thought I'd get on OK as I've been driving for ever and riding bikes of road for longer, but crikey it really doesn't prepare you for just how intense the whole motorbike gig is does it
Waking up this morning I feel more knackered than if I'd been out all day riding off road – my left arm in particular is telling me all about it.
All in all the best non-retrobike related bike experience I've had in years.
So, where from here I ask. Clearly I have to do the theory test (stupid if you ask me – I understand the rules of the road, the little 16 yrs cock I was doing the test with didn't even know what a no entry sign was – scary thing is he passed an is probably riding today on L-plates
My instructor thinks I need another day on the 125 then straight on the 500s for 2 days followed by the test day – claims the big bikes are easier to ride than the small ones.
I'm wondering about getting a 125 to practice on for a month or so – and do the training and test on. The one I was riding yesterday was quite quick enough for me – and seemed more than capable of keeping up with the town traffic.
I'm sure there are many on here who have done what I'm now doing – and asked themselves the very same questions – I'd love to find out what you all think
