    well done enjoy. The best advice I was ever given.
    1. The throttle works both ways.
    2. Every thing else on the road is potentially out to kill you.
    Enjoy and build up speed nice and gradual, ride in all conditions just so that you can, and stay safe:)

    Well done mate ! :)
    I know that it ain't that easy to pass test but I think it's easier to pass for "new riders"... When I was making my full english licence I fail 2 times! :p
    But my problem was old habits and "over confidence" :cool:

    Well done mate, there's no feeling like it. I remember becoming all official and taking the L plates off my DT125LC back in '85, happy days!

    Thanks for all the replies and good advise.

    I have ridden over the years different bikes, done despatch riding up in London for 6 months, Oct through to March, snow and alsorts admittedly on a CG125.

    Ridden FZR1000 Exup, Transalp 600 and ZX7R at various times, then stopped as not sensible thing to do.

    Also done a day riding with KTM Egypt on holiday out in the desert, now that was hard going.
    Had to practice going around a motorcross circuit which was deep sand, completely different to anything I've done before !!

    Going to mugello motogp in June, so got
    to get good before then.

    Anyone recommend a good riding school ?
    was thinking of California race school or Ron Haslam at donington park?

    Ron Haslam is good but a tad expensive, great to do Donington though, I loved it and am going back to do the Fireblade :D

    I did yes, but am relatively new to bikes so it was great for me with no worries to damaging any of my own gear/bike etc. Love the track too.

    Yes, Donington is one of my favourite circuits from when I used
    to race cars years ago, nice flowing fast corners.

    Hoping to get all 4 of us to do a course or training that are riding to Mugello motogp.
