I am interested to hear experience from fellow "uncles" taking 2B at 54 years old.

 

Glad I found this tread...very encouraging. I was about to give up. I think I will continue...

 

Started in Feb and done 20 practical already. Now only at 3.02. Fail this 4 time already...Very tough for me. Last Sat did it in the thunder storm some more.

 

I feel so tense at each lesson. After each lesson, my elbow hurts real bad and wrist is weak.

Don't worry. You are not alone. I am 46 years old.

Started my 2B lesson at BBDC on 5 Apr 16, and need to do twice for lesson 1.02 and 2.02. Going for 3.01 tomorrow. Already cleared TP riding theory test last week.

Everytime after bike lesson, my right knee hurts. Getting old.

My 8.01 is on this Friday, so nervous sia. I saw a TP slot for 20th June but didn't book Coz don't know if I can pass 8.01 in time for it. So better not book first if not so stressed.

Wow! That IS super fast! hahahah. I wish i could take lessons more often, to complete quicker.

I'm only starting lesson 2 tonight. Managed to clear every lesson so far once though... XD but i suppose it's not that hard yet.

Thank you. I will ride very safely, children still schooling.

Don't give up, the key thing is to have lots of SP/RC/RR before the TP test.

Not sure where to ask this, but how's does sub rider insurance work??

 

I'm planning to share my brother's nsr150. If I put my name as sub rider do I still need to pay for insurance and how much? I'm 19yo this year, and no riding experience. Getting licence soon this month I hope.

Just to share my experience as a 2B learner.

 

When I turned 50 this year, I told myself go learn some skills each year. And it has always been my dream to ride a motorcycle. So I took up the 2B program at BBDC. I passed my 2B test early this month.

 

For me (maybe not so applicable to many others), I learnt because of interest, not so much I really needed the license, so the mindset was different. I did not rush through the program. Have to repeat some modules here and there, but I thoroughly enjoyed the lessons. I learnt new things and techniques each time.

 

My one advice to new learners is to listen to the instructors' teaching, think about what they are saying, internalise what it means and practice it. Near towards the end of my learning, I realised how important it was to "grip the tank", "control the half-clutch" and "look far". These basic stuff really helped me to pull through the technical part of riding (plank, s-course etc). Once you can control the bike at slow speed, the technical part is easy, the moving off and stopping is easy. Once you are no longer struggling about the technical part, you will find you have lots of time to check blind spots, check this and that, off the signals etc.

 

So the bottomline is this - focus on the basics so that you can ride like a rider should! Dun be too anxious to go to the technical modules. And I wish all an enjoyable and safe riding experience!

Yes, you need to buy the insurance. (Base on your age & the riding experience) If I'm not wrong the price around 1.3k onward (Due to SP is sport bike so abit high fee). Feel free to check with the insurance company for more info.

Just enrolled for 2B. Got a car license already and now going for a bike license. For the first Circuit Orientation, what do I need to bring along? Also does the clutch biting point for a bike feels the same vibration and such as a car clutch biting point?

 

Honestly, I'm so enthusiastic to go for my lesson to be honest. I've seeing people ride and such my NS mates and such really interest hence I decided to enroll 2B. I read the Handbook for Motorcycle Rider, I try to imagine the clutch,gearing and throttle but it seems so much for than a car. Any tips even though I've not ride or tried a bike before? Like example, usually for car last time, I would accelerate a bit and then release clutch to prevent any kind of engine stall, can this be applied to bikes too?

 

Thanks.

Which school do you enroll in?

 

Myself is BBDC and just started 2B too. Just remember to bring along IC, wear long sleeves, long pants, cover shoes and the liner if you are not using your own helmet.

 

The way cluth and accelerator (throttle in bike) synchronize with each other I would say i exactly the same as how car works.

 

Personally feel that the vibration of biting point for bike is less than a car.

 

For me, who knows bicycle and motorcar, and never ride a bike before, the first difficult thing is to get used to the front brake where you cant press it abruptly.
