Awww HRC I'm glad you're not giving up! We've all had bad days. I've set out on Ziggy and done everything wrong and ended up going home. Much better to ride when you're feeling good, then when you're not. It does seem alot to think about ..clutch, throttle, brake, gears, steering.. I thought I would never master it, but you will soon be doing it without even thinking about it.. trust me. It's a good idea to try the automatic, at least you will get a feel of biking, without having to concentrate on what the left hand etc is doing Good Luck

Jackie is proof of that ...

HRC you will be better for it, I am no instructor but I would say stick to learning what you want to ride ... Only do your CBT on a twist n go if thats what you will ride round on for while not if you want a geared bike 1st off.

Get yourself some kalms and take them for a few days before your CBT they work, I was advised by my Dr to do that before my test after I was wound so tight cos so many were cancelled cos of the weather

well I had a go on the automatic last night and I got some confidence back, thankfully! so feel a bit better
going to have another lesson tomorrow instead of cbt, don't want to waste another day - and yes, I know it's costing me more but I'd far rather be safe and confident than sorry and deaded!!!!

but can I just say.....I HATE THOSE BLOODY CONES!!!!!!!

Hahah .. good for you! Just take it at your own pace, like you said. It will all come together, when you're relaxed and not stressing over it. Have a good day tomorrow.. try not to tense up.. relax your shoulders..and keep your head up. Don't look down at the cones, turn your head to look where you're going, not down at your front wheel...if that makes sense? Above all, enjoy yourself.

Had another lesson on the moped and did ok, nerves sorted, everything done right so felt ready to re-book cbt. Got back in and put helmet and jacket away and then went to book for another day only to be told I was going out on the road for a bit just a little ride out and a few manoeuvres on an industrial estate he said!
Ok, I thought, not too bad, will give e a bit of practice........2 and a bit hours later and they give me my certificate

I'm soooo chuffed, been grinning like a Cheshire cat all the way home

Big hugs to everyone for all your support
