  1. I think it depends what you want a bike for, if it's just for fun I would be inclined to get a 125, so you can practice at your own pace. One point though, you say you failed your mod 1 because you were 3k/h under the required speed limit. I thought you were allowed +or- 3k, which would only be a minor. Anyway good luck on whatever you decide
  2. Weather permitting looks like a good day out. http://www.brightona.co.uk/event/brightona-main-event-2015/
  3. Also you don’t need to take compulsory basic training (CBT) to ride a moped if you passed your car driving test before 1 February 2001. You’ll still need to complete CBT to ride a motorbike, however.
  4. Well done on taking the plunge into the biking world, (you're never to old) I passed my test a couple of months ago aged 59. While I was doing my training there were 3 other riders of simillar age on the course, and we all passed. You will need to get used to riding at 70, as part of the mod 2 will be on a NSL road, but the majority of the test will be on 30/40 limit roads. First thing I did after my test, as I was riding alone, was to wind my bike upto 95 on the way home. I quickly throttled down as I was getting buffeted, and I realised I could die. Still it was exhcilarating. Unlike y
  5. Thats not how I was shown. From start, left/right check. pull off, lifesaver and then turn. My instructor actually said, when you do your lifesver, keep your head turned and focus on an object in the distance. All I can say is that I passed with no minors.
  6. I thought that was what you are meant to do. I just hope your practice was better than this bloke.
  7. Don't park to close to the white line when you do the U turn. A bloke I was training with had a little wobble at the begining of the U turn and just touched the white line, before turning and failed. Just take a deep breadth, and visualise what you are going to do, before you start off, as mister-t says its not a race. Oh and good luck
