Passed Module 2 in the snow!

I am very happy, all i have been thinking about since my failed first attempt at module 2 is passing, i can hardly believe it's actually happened lol. :biggrin:


Best of all, my test took place during a heavy snowfall. Wet and freezing cold, Brilliant! :tongue:

So glad it's over!

Now for the first big bike. :smile

What bike am I gonna get

Suzuki GS500 

Suzuki SV650 
Honda CBF600
Yamaha Fazer 600
Honda VFR 400
Honda CBR600

Still thinking about it, but these come to mind. The GS500 is only £324 a year to insure.

Good time to buy

... as long as you don't mind spending the next few months looking at it rather than riding it much. Assuming you're enthusiastic and hard enough not to want to give in to mere hypothermia, I reckon that it would almost certainly be worth getting something cheap and old and tatty and low-insurance for now - something you won't worry so much about dropping (you will...) and getting covered in salt this winter. Which would mean the GS off that list, I guess.

I'm still on my 125cc

I've got a 125 varadaro that I'm still pootling around on for two reasons:


1) can't afford to replace it as I'm still job hunting
2) if I drop it over the winter I won't be as upset as doing so with a new bike.

steady away in the bad weather. :)

restricted?

if so a 2 cylinder restricts best.

  if not a 4 cyclinder is smoother.a fairings nice to for protection and high speed stability.

also, Have a sit on a few and see if you like to sit upright like the cbf,or be slightly foward like the cbr?

 hoarses for coarses on what bike,ah what a lovely position to be in:wink:

I dropped my pulse adrenaline

Funny story actually. Twas the night before module one. I was riding home from my mum's across town at about 21.00. The roads were wet and very cold. As I was approaching a small brick roundabout, I cautiously took the normal procedure and got down to low speed and started to steer the bike very smoothly... 


No chance! The back wheel gradually stepped out and unfortunately too far for the front wheel to handle so the bike went down and slid halfway across the road. I got straight up and picked the bike up, went to ride off then noticed the handle bars were completely screwed, so I pushed the bike home. Only a bruised hip and had to buy some new bars and grips, oh and a concussed confidence in the wet lol. 

Next day passed my module 1 with no minors. Happy days! Lol
