Mod 2 Failed a second time, feel like giving up

@Meatbingo I know. Believe me, I know in the grand scheme of things it's not big deal. I'd have to book it again and wait. It's just the waiting. I'm so in love with biking the thought of being held back because of something stupid I do gets under my skin.

The fear of Mod 1

I know mod 1 test is a hot topic, and I have not seen a recent post but wanted to join in on it.

Some folk nail the mod 1 test on the first go....or the second....I am not one of these people. I am a third times a charm kinda gal. But I did claim that holy grail of a certificate.

I have read lots of posts in my failures, it somehow makes you feel ok. But a lot of them are aimed at how pointless the mod 1 test is. I do not think it is at all.

My two fails were only down to nerves...I had perfected the tasks a million times the ability was there. But for some unknown reason when those gates brain just would not function.
And it did help to read of others failures, made me feel less like a pleb. So here are mine, and I hope they help someone else.

First fail - well you know that massive 650cc bike I was on...yeah didnt get it to go fast enough hahah - 47km on swerve, one km off a pass hahaha. (Had no minors on this test)

Second fail - I am a Hobbit...froddo is a giant to me, so the manual handling does make me out of puff. I rushed into the salom all out of breath, lost concentration and down went a foot on the last yellow cone.

Third time lucky - yayayay a pass. Got a minor for not looking before the bend on high speed serve. And a minor for a bit of a sloppy stop after the U turn. (something I have never messed up in practise)

So for me it was only ever about nerves. All practise would have been passes no minors. But tests can be very overwhelming. My advice to pass on to others, just keep going. Who cares how many times it takes. All that matters is you get there.

If you aren't a lucky first timer...that is ok as only you will be controlling that bike. It does not matter how other people pass it.

My wallet would have preferred if I passed first time. As it was so dam close....but I class it as extra training ...test centre was 1 hour ride away, so got lots of road training.

Although, I did find it strangely stressful....(is fear of cones a thing? Somebody Google that) and I did not pass in a easy way, I feel even more proud of that certificate. This is a small moment in time, but I will be riding for the rest of my life. Worth it.

So I do not think the test is the problem. I think it is only good to learn these skills and to prove you can do them.

And I feel amazing to have it now. Like I know I deserve that bike...(possibly a CBR600F)
