    Hi All,
    Just purchased a little scooter hehe in readiness to get my 'grown up' bike licence. Thought it might be helpful for me to get some 'riding' experience before I start proper lessons. Have been driving cars for 16 years so it was a little freaky riding home today from the dealer on two wheels, but after the initial nerves settled I had an awesome time

    Hi, welcome.

    Your better off getting lessons now, even with a scooter. Otherwise you'll get into bad habbits without knowing it.
    Personally I feel that majority of scooter riders are the most likely to harm themselves due to lack of education, tuition and knowledge of how to ride properly and for survival.

    Anyways, enjoy the forum, there's a wealth of knowledge on here.

          Ello.
          Hang around, pick up some roadcraft from some of the people here, maybe find somebody experienced in your area that is happy to go on a coffee ride sometime with you. Went for a run with a young fellow and his scooter a few weeks ago and even not being a fabulous guide myself, I hope I imparted a few things that'll keep him around a bit longer. Sadly without any real training required to get onto a small capacity scooter, people are out there coming far too close to doing themselves fairly serious injury.

          Some very simple roadcraft tips will go a long way to keeping you upright and in one piece and certainly aid you when it comes time to get a 'real' motorcycle.
