Evening all, just want to say and try and encourage any "Older Ladies" that may be thinking of or would like to ride a bike! Im 54 and about 6 yrs ago got myself a 50cc Aprillia scooter and loved it, but then Hubby decided he would like to buy caravan so my scooter went parlty to pay for it.Anyway a couple of yrs later I really fancied another scooter so bought a Piaggio Fly125, did my CBT and loved it, although it was long cold day in the rain, unfortunatly I was knocked off it just over 2 yrs ago, so decided to give a geared bike a try lol. got myself a Yamaha Custom 125, and almost 2 yrs later thought ohh come on get your Mod 1 done girl! wasnt sucsessful 1st attempt only got up to 49 km and was bitterly dissapointed so gave it a rest until about 10 week ago when I took it again.having gained more confidence and having practiced more emrgency stops and swerving at 30mph I just thought ok lets go for it... and whoopeeee managed 53km on swerve and emergency.
Today!!!! woohooooo have pased Mod 2 !! ohh the best feeling ever, I was sssshhhhhaking yes! but I tried really hard to concentrate as if I failed then I would end up having to take another CBT as well..it started raining (I hate being out in the rain on my bike) but i know that will come with confidence.as yet my L Plates are still on (will take them off first thing tomorrow) what I want to say is....if you fancy it have a go!! im a 54 yr old grandma and yes maybe I should be getting my slippers and knitting needles ready lol..but Noooo Wer'e not ready for that yet are we girls!!! sooo what you waiting for!!!!
