|At last! My upgraded driving licence|
In about 10 days time, my provisional Learner licence will be come to an end and be upgraded because today I just passed the JPJ bike test for a full B licence. Yeah! After about a 40 year lapse, the motorcycle training course has been a very good refresher course and I even got to learn a few tips/techniques in handling the motorcycle in slow speed i.e. less than 20kph. On day 1, the trainer told me not to train in the figure 8 and the rest but to familiarize myself with the feel of a superbike because I have with me a cruiser where handling is very much different so it was just circling around the "road area". On day 2, I succeeded zig-zagging the 5 cone and going over several humps but never made it to half a figure 8. By day 3, figure 8, u-turns and road area were done adequately and improved on Day 4 but I could not complete the mandatory bridge yet passed the Routine Vehicle Maintenance test. On Day 5, after valuable tips from the instructor, I managed to complete the narrow bridge test several times. Truly practice makes perfect and the number of repeats needed to clear a hurdle is relative to a rider's skill.
