Just Got My Knee Down For First Time

After trying for a while decided today is the day I get my knee down even if I come off I was going to do it.#

So go to Business Park near me and there is 2 roundabouts about 200m from each other  1 bigish and 1 small to medium, so I go round no joy drive to the next no joy realising im going to slow, so I give it a bit more gas drop the bike to the side and shat myself how far down I went and still not touched, but this given me more confidence now that I have dropped the bike so low, so I do this 2 more times getting lower each time, so with the grit between my teeth approached the small roundabout leg out leaning down into the roundabout bang my knee hit the floor the noise of the pad scrapping at first scared me to which I never had done so I popped the bike up then realising what I have done screaming and shouting under my helmet that I have finally got my knee down what a feeling.

So I go and take my run at it again and this time scrapped the pad all the way round well most of it but felt like all the way round well I just cant hide my excitement stopped the bike and took 5 min as I was over the moon.

It was the best ride home thought I was Rossi on way home every corner every roundabout dropping my bike lower then I normally would as the confidence I have now is unreal.

I am so fcukin chuffed,

 

Simon

was enough, for me. I reckon it was pretty good for an old lady but I won't be doing it again. Made my heart beat a bit too fast for comfort :shock:
