Passed my full up in Westgate today – the instructor was really great! Older big guy, with a Mo. Said he was a rider too. Made the experience much more pleasant than my restricted. Before the test he explained everything, like what speeds he expected me to be doing, where’d we’d be going etc. Didn’t go on the motorway – only 80km area for about 5 minutes. Was a great test, I think maybe only 20~30 minutes all up? Was too out of it / anxious to remember to check my watch!
I must say – feels like only yesterday that I passed my restricted!
now on to test ride some big bikes!
Went into Mt Eden motors after work today and had a long chat with this guy Selbe (sp?) – dark dude. Anyway, he lectured me about how much more powerful the bike I wanted to test is (Yamaha R6 06′) than my bike (Honda CBR 250 88′ Hurricane) for quite a while, then insisted that I come in tomorrow (Saturday) and test ride a couple of bikes – for nearly an hour each! Woah, can’t wait…. But after his speech, I’m a *tad* nervous!
Pity none of my friends ride big bikes! – Gonna suck going up North solo.
Attached is a picture of the bike I’m interested in… Now I just gotta some how justify the expense 😉
