I found the slow manoeuvres relative easy, however once we got out on the road and it became real life, I wouldn't say it was hard, but I was really concentrating very hard to ride the bike. Where I was concentrating hard on just riding the bike, I was not focused on what I was doing, and found myself doing stupid thing I would never dream of doing in a car. I felt it came together a bit on the final 15mins of the ride, but was still not 100% confident. So I am in two minds, should I buy a 125 and go out an learn and get used to riding at my own pace with no pressure from an instructor? And at least have a bike now. Or do a couple of more hours with the instructor then work towards my MOD 1? There is also the fact you cannot get a MOD 2 test until late September, so I am thinking by the time I get round to MOD 2 the test will be October/November and don't fancy doing my test in winter?
