Would love to hear some words of wisdom from all you bikers out there!
Recently started to learn to ride. At 32 I have been wanting to ride since age 13 but never got round to it for various reasons. I really want to get on two wheels now i have the chance but since I started out I have just come up against a brick wall... (or several..)
Family and friends and "advice" from anyone I mention my passion for two wheels its always the same response "Oh don't do that... MUCH to dangerous"...I was aware of the potential risks, but all the constant negative pressure from certain people around me has now taken its toll. Making me feel like they are "right" and I shouldn't even be thinking about doing it.
Then there is the recent test updates... reading peoples views on this "improved" bike test it appears at the moment just a huge hill to climb.
Anyone else out there been in the same situation as me? Was it worth pressing on and ignoring the nay sayers? At the moment I feel like its not worth it...
