hi like all things in life I put off taking me bike test, that I should've taken 30 years ago, until recently
well I did me CBT last year and got the bug again, so decided to do a direct access scheme, seemed like the best option.
did my theory test nee bother, then me mod 1 which I got thru with a few minors, then me mod2, fluffed it the first time, cos I crossed the central reservation as I came round a corner. rebooked it then went to do it but they cancelled due to high winds, so rebooked again, and yes fluffed it again, got to close to a van (within 2 car lengths) so I have rebooked it again, but keeping it on the QT to save on embarrassment.
I`m a 50 year old bloke who drives trains from Newcastle central station, got a Suzuki marauder 125 which I`m using to practice on, and a Yamaha 650 Dragstar sitting in the garage that I`m itching to ride.
Another driver from EWS put me onto this site so here I am introducing meself. ekib
