Sarah C's test on her Suzuki Van Van
Oh, Sarah C!
So sorry to hear that you failed your bike test!
I have been eagerly following your progress every day as I am a lady rider and currently ride my Van Van on L plates. After all your struggles with U turns, which I relate to, to fail after what you seemed to think was a good test, must be gutting! I am doing my Direct access course and test towards the end of June, and really just want to be able to ride my own bike as a "qualified biker", and not to be "aimed at" by some car drivers who seem to see red when they see L plates!
Please post a daily blog of your retest course and the outcome, as for relatively new riders (few months) like me, it really helps.
I have followed your progress since I first visited the MCN website, when I first bought my bike in January. I read your early reviews last year of riding the Van Van, and as you were a shortie lady rider like me, I went out and bought a Van Van, fuelled by the tales of yourself learning on it!
It's been brilliant to read your blogs. I know you work for MCN online, but your writing style is very interesting, and at times, very entertaining. Keep up the good work!
Oh, by the way, did the American guy pass his Direct access test? I am doing my DAS on a Honda CB500 just like he did.
