as long as those fit well. Its your first glove hehee... mine was about 20 bucks... But once i got my own bike i went with the orsa after doing alot of research and totally love the BOA system... they really make the glove very snug. Thats why i love it more than those velcros.

😂😂😂 sounds like those durian glove type hahaa… one time use glove. You might wanna get leather ones then. But it’s hard to wash and dry the leather ones daily. If it’s about sanitization maybe wiping the bike handles will be better 🙊🙊🙊. If sweat then get those textile glove. Easier to wash. 😆
 

just squeeze the gloves a little and let it hang dry😂 don’t squeeze it

Please hang in there... usually they will count 1,2,3.. you would be out cold... I had an op before... for hernia... (old man) and when you wake.. they will ask you a question to check on you.. can be "what is this?" *holding a pencil.

Do note that the ops are usually necessary to ensure that you recover.. it's not pleasant.. but it would help you get up and about again!

Lesson 1.02.

Sunday and it was cloudy... by the time I reached to Bukit Batok, the skies had opened up a bit and the clouds looked slightly cloudy.

Reached early this time and proceeded to the motorcycle office where most of the students geared up.

This time round; got everything in hand and did not bring a bag (save the S$1/- on the locker)

Next; logged in the app and was told to click "attend" to see the vest number. Sat down and waited.

The class this time round was slightly bigger with 6 bikes. The overall number of students were much larger in terms of other classes.

Got the call to "get go" and went out to the shed. This time, lesson 1.02 was about some revision of moving the bike round the circuit in gear one and not stalling.

Next we were told to change gear to 2 and 3. Made to do dry run (a term use for shooting - firearms where you don't use actual bullets) where students placed the bike on the main stand and practice disengaging clutch while changing gears and engaging clutch and throttle simultaneously while engine is off. While this might seem like "not fun at all"; it was useful getting the concept right of knowing how to squeeze the clutch; disengage, and then select gears.

The clouds began to open and next thing was, we had to don on the raincoats... man it was so hot... 😬 just wore the top but let the jeans get soaked.. it's fine... wet and cool beats wet (with perspiration) and hot.

Got back on the bikes...

Next; students were told to change gears in the portions of the mini-circuit (call it mini as it wasn't very large) where gear one to take off; then 2 to maintain speed and on the straights; gear three.

If one was too slow; gear three would end up being a gurgling sound as the speed would be too slow to match the gear.

The exercise was after hitting gear three and completing the round; the student should bring the bike to a stop while downshifting to gear 1. Now that seems easy right? Unless you are on sgbikeforums.com with class 2B license :D

That's why we are called students ...

After which, of mini circuits; three students were asked to go out to the larger circuit to do rounds with guidance from the instructor leading. It felt so much more smooth as speed could be picked up and the engine on third was fairly comfortable to the point of saying fourth, but third gear would do.

After three rounds, were told to stop and to dismount and push the bikes into the mini-circuit to park the bikes.

The lesson was then over and were told to return the raincoats and meet at the office.

Next was told to acknowledge the result at the end of lesson.

It was wet but had the privilege of learning more about riding and proceeding to the next lesson.

One tip; if it rains, the number vest color might run and stain your white T shirt; I think black is better in this instance. :)

Do let us know that you are "okay"... at least when you are out of it and how you are faring.... The folks in the forum are absolutely thinking about you and that you make a speedy recovery!

I now learn it from you.. I think I need another set of gloves as when I ride, will wash them... Singapore weather is so hot and the gloves need to be washed for sure.... Ok, will update here once I get one.. I didn't get one over the weekend as time was really tight in that instance.. Might get it on Saturday.

I actually bought the durian glove that was recommended here also. It's still in the bag since the other one is working out. Told hb, it's on standby 😂

Checking out RS Taichi or Komaine gloves... not too pricey.. compared to Dainese... they seem to be mesh and could possibly hold up to washing...

We pretty much did the same thing as CDC! 

As my mom quipped, "you don't even ride bicycle you wanna ride bike 🙄". I can imagine the eye roll over the phone. 😂 but it's true lah I don't even cycle 😂

I need to get over the "phobia" of riding first, so I booked a lesson on Thursday morning for myself (hb has more experience w the bicycle and he has no time to go on weekday mornings).  I want to get more comfortable on the bike. Last week I bruises the pelvic bone, probably due to sitting in a strange way 😂 cos it's only on one side. This week my upper body was really tense so till now my shoulder/chest/shoulder blade has some aching 😂 very weak 🤭

well... it's for the fun of it. 

my father wondered how I'm supposed to go to gear 3 in the mini circuit and said "wouldn't it be easier if you had more space to ride?" Cos I told him with the number of bobo riders (like me) in this small circuit, the most comfortable gear I can use is 2. I went to 3 a few times but have to go back down to 2 in a few secs... like very waste time right? 

Tomorrow morning I can finally zoom my first riding theory class 😂 haven't read the book. Not necessary, right?

Wah looks solid! I feel like I won't do the gloves justice 😂 I like the Fox one I'm currently using... wanted to say I'll take a photo on Thursday, then I realise I don't bring my phone to class 😂 do you bring ur phone with u? Keep in the jeans pocket?

oh ya, it also seems like ur school provides raincoats! CDC doesn't provide, we're told to bring our own.

Can keep the phone in the jeans pocket! Don’t worry about bicycles…. As long you love the motorbike… one can learn! 
Yes, the lessons are fun and I look forward to each lesson; it’s once a week for me as work keeps me really busy on the weekdays and I can’t afford to do it on weekdays…. Work requires full attention with little room for error… 
For riding theory class; just bring our attention I guess :) 

You use FOX gloves? Wow… I use a no brand for now.. but might get some good protection… I’m happy that you are enjoying the lessons Jane! :)

Thank you 😊 I don't know if the gloves is imitation but It was quite cheap on shopee... 

yeah... it'll probably be my only weekday morning lesson cos I can already predict that I'll be late 😂 there's no way I can drive from east coast road, park and get to cdc in 10 mins. What was I thinking?!?

nvm lah. I'm not aiming to pass the lesson, I'm just trying to clock in the hours. Told my hb - musicians and sports ppl know how impt repetition is for mastering a skill. I can do this for hours hahahaha go round and round in a small oval. I'm just it's the same for mastering any skill.

Yes, that is true about repetition and it really requires commitment to learn bikes in Singapore as it is a very structured course. There is so much to learn from the course and from the people here. Sound like a broken tape recorder but riding a bike is vulnerable on the road. So, we need to learn how to control to bike and react the situations. So much to learn! :)

this definitely brings me back to the good old days.. haha.. but I remember mine skips over quite fast.. back in the days.. we don't have so many lessons.. most lesson is combined into 1.. based on current number of lesson divided by 2.

rain coat is a choice.. or put a spare set of clothes at your destinations in advance.. LOL.. Singapore weather can be SUPER unpredictable.

 

Yeah.. been keeping in touch with her.. don't worry.. she's still alright but tired from medicine and shag...

LOL.. so have you went for your lesson 1? 

If balancing is a issue, need to learn it at your own time already...

CDC doesn't provide.. even if they do.. you do not wan it.. haha... wear 5min, stink whole day.. so... better not la...

LOLOLOL...

I'm just worried if you don't know how to balance.. you could be struck in lesson one.. if cannot balance.. get a bicycle and learn how to balance.. (it is almost identical for balance but riding is completely different..) Bicycle is slightly hard compared to motorcycle.. But motorcycle is heavier..

Good to know she's okay 😊

I can ride bicycle lah. Just haven't done it in a loooooooong time. Hence no confidence. 
 

once I clock in the required number of hours I'll feel better....

oh I attended the RTT A just now and the instructor said I can wear sleeveless for practical if I wear a jacket for the lesson. 
 

so any recommendation for mesh jacket? Px/brand?

i want something good enough. Not the best 😂 i don't foresee myself going on the highway much/at all. So really just to go around the neighborhood.

Bicycle is about balancing and paddling to keep the balance 😆😆 when you wanna fall on a bicycle your legs automatically comes down… that’s actually bad riding on a motorcycle. 
 

on a motorcycle you need to get used to controlling the clutch to be at the biting point and control the bike at low speed. Only then you’ll have confidence at low speed. At low speed it behaves almost like a bicycle except for the clutch control vs paddling to keep balance. A moving motorcycle at 10km will almost never drop😆😆

at higher speed is when you need to start turning the motorcycle like a motorcycle. Where you let the bike lean into the curve. You however don’t need to lean into it but can just maintain your cg as best as you can. I know you’ll be tempted to see if your knee can touch the ground.. but please do that on a track with full gears and at 150kmh or higher 😆😆 after you are sure you can come out of it alive hehehe. 
 

for jackets, just go to the shops to try out the sizing. Make sure the pads are proper strong rubber type and not those flimsy foam type… it should be able to protect you from some hard landings. Minimally, elbow, shoulder and back. Some better ones comes with chest pads…

why need chest pads? I also asked that question… until one day a truck kicked up a super big piece of stone in front of me and it came flying straight at me… I felt it was too dangerous to try and move out of the way because the road was crowded and took the hit directly… it hit the chest pad and I had a blue black at where it bounced off from the pad… 😱 imagine if I didn’t have a chest pad there? 🙈 hitting a flying rock at 90kmh… is painful la.

That rock! Wow! Okay not going on highway liao 😂

once my hb was on the pie sending the oldest to class, a branch flew into his windshield! Cracked the windshield right where my son was sitting! It is known as the flying cigar incident. If it were a bike... die liao. 

tbank you for all the advice. It find it comforting to know that the bike won't fall when it goes at 10kmh. Really? 😂 low speed is really hard, esp in a crowded mini circuit. 
 

oh ya! When I read snooptrader's account what I found funny was his class only 4-6 ppl. CDC always 10-12 ppl in the mini oval... like 😱 where got space!!! I just keep siaming ppl...

for jackets, just go to the shops to try out the sizing. Make sure the pads are proper strong rubber type and not those flimsy foam type… it should be able to protect you from some hard landings. Minimally, elbow, shoulder and back. Some better ones comes with chest pads…

why need chest pads? I also asked that question… until one day a truck kicked up a super big piece of stone in front of me and it came flying straight at me… I felt it was too dangerous to try and move out of the way because the road was crowded and took the hit directly… it hit the chest pad and I had a blue black at where it bounced off from the pad… 😱 imagine if I didn’t have a chest pad there? 🙈 hitting a flying rock at 90kmh… is painful la. 

*taking notes on jackets.. thanks Siphon!

I am sure your son had a shock, but in a car, the advantage is a shell.. hope both were fine...

At CDC, you can practice overtaking! :D

Hey all~ thanks for the concern.. the 3rd op went pretty smoothly since my husb n sis scolded the medical team for wat has happened during the 2nd ops n they changed the method to make sure i pass out during the surgery.. my right hand is now full of bruises from the iv drips n blood test due to my veins keep getting constricted.. they said the iv thing can keep for 3-5 days but all my veins on right hand either disappear on the spot after poking if not cannot be used again on the 2nd day.. pretty devastating for the past few days so apologies if i MIA.. if all goes well, i can be discharged next monday then followed by a 1 month HL.. tbh i really didnt feel the fall as that bad to make mi land in hospital for so long.. need to go on full gear if im still gonna be riding going forward le.. sighz..

It really sounds traumatic... having the IV line in is really a nuisance. Feeling your pain. 

i hope your recovery will be uneventful and you'll be mobile again soon.

It was years ago.... so they're fine but that's about as bad as it got for us with cars.
