It's been over a month since I've completed my course at PRS. I have passed my MSA and recently bought a used Kawi 250.
I tried to ride as frequently as possible, but with work and other prior arrangements it's been difficult.
Just a few days ago, my friend took me on my first; what I consider a long ride, ever since PRS, from Burnaby to Poco to Richmond. He says I did pretty well, I was able to travel with the speed of traffic, didn't stall, and was able to pick up speed when the light changed. I felt great, but I still felt that I was lacking something. I really think it's my confidence, but uncertain. I enjoy riding with someone, but I really want to learn to ride independently.
when I do ride alone, I feel nervous and I find myself a bit wobbly. I've tried to overcome my nervousness by singing a song in my head, as Kramer taught me in class. But... still I feel like I'm lacking something. I'm afraid to drop my bike again (b/c I've done it before in class, my poor rebel ).
For you experience riders out there, what are your thoughts?
How do I overcome all my fears?
Is it just experience I'm lacking?
I really enjoy riding and hope to get better. On top of that, I have to take my road test before my MSA licence expires.
