It's gone ....

the L plate that is!!

Went for my licence last night and passed!! Woo hoooooooooo!!

Took the L off of Scarlett first thing this morning (even though I didn't ride her to work .. Christmas party today = lots of drinking :-)).

The test was harder than I thought it would be but I got there in the end. The instructor said I was a very cautious rider which is not a bad thing, but with emergency stops I needed to be a bit heavier on the break.

It was pretty different to being on my own bike but I'll try my best to implement some of the things he showed us last night.

This time in 12 months .............. finances pending I'll have a new bike ................... if we are poor I'll dust of the CBR and use her as my new bike.

Yay me!!

Oh yeah! Congrats! Well done! 12 months will go faster than you think, then it's your turn to go shopping! What do you like the look of?

I keep looking at a whole heap of bikes .. but always go back to the VFR800. The riding position seems to be more to what I like. I do like the Triumphs but may be out of my price range .. and I haven't sat on any yet to see what the comfort factor is like.

I'm going to enjoying deciding though :-)))
