Anyone that is currently learning 2A or had 2A license?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I am currently thinking of planning to register for class 2A at BBDC after 1 year of passing 2B which will be after 15 December 2015 which is the day I got my class 2B license. But I have a problem in mind is that I am a lady and my height is only 1.52M and my legs r very short. So need advise if my height is suitable to learn class 2A and what r the height of the 2A bike? Because I worring that my feet can't touch the ground for 2A bike as when I am learning class 2B at BBDC I already took the low cut sit and can't even fully touch the ground still n have to tip toe. Also I fell down quite a number of times due to short legs 😅. So what will be the advise u can give me? Thanks :)

My advice is go to riding center to talk to instructors before u sign up. They are in better position to advise and help. But i saw with my own eyes a small sized girl around your height riding a Kawa Z1000. My jaw drop. At traffic junction i give her a thumbs up. Respect.

Wa that's pretty fast. But the problem is 2A bike is heavier so when I fall, it's quite hard to carry up the bike. Even for my own bike when I fall I can't even carry up my bike let alone 2A bike 😣😣

When I got my class 2 and a sport tourer. I stress up as my leg short. hahaha. 1.72m 95kg. One advice from a uncle, " The more u scare the more the bike fall on u" hahahhaha. For a start everytime i put my leg across in my heart i say. Im riding u ! I not scare of u !

That's good. Well done! Thanks for sharing though... But I still kinda worry 😖

I learned how to lift up back my 270kg bike from youtube. Go n see how can be done. Proven a 45kg girl can lift a GOLDWING upright back. You are not far from me. I cannot carry up a 2A bike too but i can lift back to upright position when the bike tip over. hehhehehee :cheeky::cheeky::cheeky:

Lifting a bike to upright is all about technique. If the technique is wrong and under the wrong condition, it is very difficult to lift the bike regardless of the amount of strength used.

 

I dropped my 10 days old bike at my carpark. The bike was wet after the rain and the concrete floor was wet; I just couldn't lift it and I waited for about 10 mins before another biker returned and helped me.

 

Shortly, I dropped the same bike again in a crowded Orchard carpark. I lifted up at 1 go coz of the other people 'eye powers', very embarrassing. :?

Lifting the bike from dropped position requires "butt power", or body weight. For heavy bikes, purely arm power won't work. You have to press your weight from the side of the bike and start pushing the bike up with your legs.

 

Remember to drop side stand down first if you're pushing from the right side.

 

Try practising with driving center's bike. Theirs got big crash bars attached, so even easier to push up.

during my time, there was a short ger

 

she ride a wr200

 

when she stop, she will slide her butt down to 1 side

to stand

 

or put her foot on ppl car tyre. lol

 

People's car tyre? 😅.. But one main problem is I ever fall when the road surface is tilted to the left. Cos the weight goes to the left and I fall. That was during raining day. In the end I ran towards the bus stop n ask a guy to help me lift up my bike. When the bike is standing I can't even use my left leg to lift to the right leg to stable my bike before I go off. That sucks

I watched the YouTube video too. The American teaching was to use the butt to sit at the seat, place the hand one at the handle one at the back of the bike and use both legs to lift up. Didn't try that method so far...

I agree... driving centers has crash bars n easier to lift up. I dunno if I am planning to install crash bar on my bike too...

Unfortunately, none came forward coz it happened too fast. Drivers who were waiting for lots were looking at me and yes, it was their 'eye power' that I muster all my strength and lifted it at 1 go... I was only 1/4 of my bike's weight.
