Yeah, you'll get the hang of it in no time.

Nice bike, by the way. I forgot to say that earlier.
Thanks. She's getting lots of compliments. And I only stalled once this morning, so am definitely improving. Gear changing still not as smooth as I'd like, but practice, practice, practice.

I MADE IT!!! RODE TO WORK AND BACK AGAIN. First time riding the bike on the rode. No crashes. No close calls. Stalled 9 times this morning during my journey in, but only 3 times on the way home. Definitely improving and nowhere near as difficult as I was expecting. Heard some random people compliment the bike as I rode past. I even managed to overtake a car this evening. And I was even able to wear my aviator sunglasses under my helmet.

In conclusion, day 1: I'm still alive, I didn't kill anyone and I had fun.
Congratulations to your trip and your bike Grin

Day 2 and I'm happy to report that, yet again, I AM STILL ALIVE!!! Despite riding in the rain for the first time and having a near miss right outside my office (thanks to a young guy driving way too fast down a back road).

Seriously though, my road confidence is almost at the same level as when I ride my bicycle on the road (so pretty high). Only 1 stall on the way to work and 1 on the way home. Definite improvement. Even started controlling my low speed using my back brake.

1 week in, 2 near misses and 1 incredibly inconsiderate housemate who have blocked the drive with his old wardrobe and chest of drawers meaning I can't lock my bike up in it's normal place. Very annoyed, but hopefully the local council will come and collect it soon.

Good looking bike!

Keep at it. The near misses will happen. I ride " Counter-Offensive ". Never in a blind spot, and no one is allowed behind by more than 50 feet once we are going over 50mph. Easier said than done.  Intersections though, be careful at those my friend.

If you ever need back up, call me in!!!

My wife got me this a while back. Thought due to the color scheme it was " Dark Jedi " ish.

Told her it was Poe's and I love it. We will just tell everyone I had to shoot him down and take it from him. ( yea...right..)

I think she knew what she is doing, always trying to pull me back into the Light....I keep telling her im not in the Dark or the Light, I am the Shadow....and a Shadow requires both.
