Please could you give me some advice.
I passed my CBT in Spetemeber time last year. Im 29years old from Derby/Notts area. My experience of the whole CBT was dreadful. I managed to pass somehow. The bikes were passed their best, the trainers were constantly racing again time so for someone who had never ridden a bike before it was living hell. the headsets kept dying so out on a run we lost communication and had to pull up for 20 minutes while he fixed the thing.
Where I am at now:
-Have not been on a bike since
-Want to re-train / learn how to ride a bike properly as my gear changes were all over the place. All I was told was "you know how to drive a car.. its the same"
- Finally want to get a big bike licence if this year if possible as just been quoted £600 for my car insurance .
- Should I phone up to do another CBT and possibly still no be sure how to change gear correctly?
- Should I buy a 125cc bike and practice on my driveway/quiet industrial road until i get the knack of gear changing?
- Should I contact a motorbike instructor and ask for 1-2-1 pay as you go lessons?
Im not thick, just that it takes me a bit longer than average to pick up something, like i passed my car test after 1 year on the second attempt.
Thanks all for your help.
