    I'm back and i'm better

    I realise the title makes it seem like i've been involved in a crash but i promise you it's just a verse from bryson tiller(singer/rapper). Anyway THIS was my first post on this. However i kind of had a bit of financial trouble and i had my last year of uni to finish off, so i decided to put this motorcycling stuff on hold. We'll now i'm back, got a test in two weeks time, got a couple lessons with Elite Motorcycle(great team s/o to the two brothers Tai and Anthony). I hope to pass hopefully first time, so i can start my shopping for a bike.

    any tips? I realise they've made it harder now 3poor marks and it's a straight fail. But i'm doing it at cannington and know the area pretty well. So hope to smash it. i'll let you guys know tho. Wish me well

    Tips?

    Dont bin it during the test.

    Try not to bin it after the test.

    Good luck and welcome back!

    Welcome back Ali, hope it goes well for you!, its good you are doing lessons, get the most of them you can. take in what they say and ask them if you aren't sure about something, road rules or road position or need to a practice a particular skill. they are there to help you.

    Pass hopefully or maybe not, fail first time? keep at it, its definitely worth the effort !
    I cant help it if your perceptions don't match my reality

    Tips:

    focus on learning how not to die rather than how to short-cut/pass the test, and the test results will take care of themselves so long as you don’t speed.
    “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

    Be sure you indicate on and off in time. Over-exaggerate the looking so the examiner can see you check where you are meant to. Turning is easier if you relax your arms so you need to fight the natural reaction to be too tense. If there is a decision between wait a little longer or go in a hurry now, take the first option. Remember to breathe. Good luck.
    Life is NOT a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: "Wahoo!! What a ride!"
