Subject: Motorbike lesson
I had my first motorbike lesson today.  The guy didn't know what to expect, but when he heard I was a complete newb he kind of rolled his eyes. 

There were two other people in the lesson: a middle aged woman and an older man, both of whom were returning for a second or third lesson.

At the end of the hour I was kicking their asses: The old guy was knocking over pylons, the woman was stalling the bike.  I was wobbly, and my figure-8s were sketchy at best, but I was kicking ass all over the place.  It was a lot of fun: reflexes are slow building when you've moved all your controlls around: brakes, clutch and throttle are unlike any vehicle I've ever used!

And then, of course, you get into the car only to find that it's the slowest thing in the world: and my car ain't slow.  It is, however, a liquid smooth dream compared to the 750cc Honda cruiser I was learning on.  And windows!  And air con!

Anyway, it was fun.  Next time we're going out on the road, which should be very exciting.   :-D

So, after waiting for zumi to take a few lessons and catch up to me, we've now both completed our Q-ride and are now licensed to drive dangerous motor-on-2-wheels vehicles.  =D

So I found a three wheeled vehicle to ride instead.  No, not that one.

This one!
