    Just remember - if you haven't seen the whites of the drivers eyes - assume they haven't seen you. Take care.....

    Nice one Karen! :grinning:

    Assume every other road user is drunk, partially sighted & they only passed their test yesterday.
    I was given that bit of advice when Nelson was a lad. It's stood me in good stead so far :)

    I would endorse Stolly’s point. You can learn a whole heap and experience will teach you a whole lot more but nothing bears appreciating your relative invisibility on the road. A bike can disappear behind a door pillar the way a car never can. If you can’t see another driver, he can’t see you. Don’t get in blind spots and certainly never stay there.
    Enjoy!

    One of the best pieces of advice I got was to be very wary of drivers wearing flat caps. Surprisingly sage, as it happens. Good on yer lass, take it steady. Dark nights are coming. (do that in a Sean Bean voice) :)

    I hope you enjoy the freedom you feel from riding a motorcycle. A lot of good advice above, but I will add 1 more.

    If you see a car at a junction. Assume it will pull out in front of you. They look but don’t see Motorcycles. Even ones with headlights on and riders wearing reflective jackets.

    That'll throw some extra confusion into the mix Karen.
    Learning on a modern Jap bike. Then having to relearn a right foot gear change! o_O

    Well done & remember what the teachers told you - all the accidents in your wing mirrors had nothing to do with you :)
