  • R-E license learner in Nollamara

    Hi,

    I'm a 29yr old female learner (already drive) - bought a Honda CB125e and all the gear and have had one lesson so far. Got into bikes as I used to cycle to work, but sustained a back injury earlier in the year so can no longer cycle and thought a motorbike would be a good alternative!

    My instructor is great, but is very busy and doesn't do weekends. Also, my job involves some field work so I'm not always around during the week. I'm really keen to get my license, but having to wait two weeks til my next lesson, I feel like it's going to take ages!

    Ideally, I'd like to practise outside of the lessons, but obviously can't on my own. So my question is are there any riders in Nollamara who would be prepared to shadow, or does anyone know of anywhere off-road that I can practise? I considered just pottering along my road, but don't want to risk it!

    Thanks!

    Welcome to PSB

    I'm sure there are plenty of people on here that will volunteer to help you out with shadowing.

    Could push your bike to a decent sized carpark somewhere and practice there, like [MENTION=41274]thatchick[/MENTION] does.

            This. I'm finding when practicing with my instructors the hardest things and the things I need to work on most are the slow stuff. So this works well for me

            And Welcome!

                  :o Push on bikes are 10-20kg. Motorbikes are from 130 kg and up.
                  Have a good one.

                      It's the physical cycling motion and pressure it puts on my back which is the problem, not the weight of the bike.

                        Thank you all for your replies - sorry for the delay in responding back - I haven't been getting notifications so wasn't aware!

                        I'm not confident to go on main roads yet - just need to potter around my local streets practising gear changes, etc at the moment. Unfortunately there aren't any large car parks near me to practise Thanks to those have offered to shadow - I'll PM you!

                          Hi, I had the CB125E before. There is few things to keep in mind while you riding this bike. I`m back on shore mid of Dec. You can PM me and I can give you a shadow couple of times.
                          Have a good one.

                            Perhaps the Stirling Council carpark would do? It's got plenty of space etc and usually pretty quiet after hours. If not confident on the road (and that's fine, you're new), perhaps follow someone down in the car while they ride your bike, or pillion, then practise. Happy to help out if needed. It's just timing that's the issue

                              Depends what part of Nollamara you're in, but there is a huge carpark opposite the church on Ravenswood. Obviously back injuries will make a long push pretty terrible if you're a fair way away from that..
