New bike New licence New underpants

Post  firemaster on Fri May 06 2011, 16:24

well after 2 years of a honda varadero 125 i took the plunge and went for my licence and passed, so what bike do i get? a thundercat, nice bike but after a GS 500 for my test its not so much a cat but a monster. but being 40 i respect the bike, so apart from a huge wheelie i pulled when over taking a lorry (first ever overtake) no mishaps yet.
been 6 weeks since getting it and i have now got the hang of it and enjoying the larger quicker bike.

im from the south west (wiltshire) work in bristol and take trips to the soutcoast (poole westbay weymouth) so might see some of you out there somewhere great

if you wonder what my cat looks like, look at ezzy mums avatar pic its exactly the same ;-)

any dont worry 1 little bit about the test, its simples
module 1 is childs play
module 2 is not hard just concentrate and dont forget the test aint over until he says it is lol

module 1 i had 1 fault, not getting off the bike right, i put the stand down before taking out of gear Question
module 2 1 minor fault, not over taking on a dual carriage way but staying at 50mph Question
