The absolute best (worst) was when mate #1 on a SS50 was in front, spotted fit bird ( attractive young lady ) he knew and slammed on his brakes, Mate #2 on AP50 failed the swerve test and ran into the back of mate #1, me on FS1E passed swerve test and just missed them both.
Fit bird was unimpressed as mates #1 & #2 started kicking lumps out of each other as I tried to keep the peace:

So I suppose the only ones to blame for your little off is the complete tits before you who road like twats and forced the Government to introduce such stringent tests.

Don’t let it put you off - it’s a rite of passage and you’ve earned it.

Yep I agree MP84
I also think if you’re brave enough to post your epic helmet grazing glide on here you’re brave enough to ace any poxy (aka extremely fussy, demanding, easy to fail) motorcycle test without concerning yourself about the tough stuff you are.

Go for it, we need you (would display WW2 poster with strong arm woman here but don’t seem to have any to hand) and I look forward to seeing your shiny new helmet on the road

“It’s shit. And as soon as I get home I’m going to buy one.”
That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

Occasionally whilst sat on the sofa @Magpie84 laughs, and when I ask what about she says "oh just something on Motorbike Women" and I'm allowed to know no more. A real top secret organisation and I believe there's penalty of death (or at least removal from the group) if you divulge any conversations or pictures therein to any bloke :lol:

Their joining criteria is so strict I had to take a pic of her with her bike in order to be approved. So you might want to get your wig out.

I didn't even realise that @elizabethf was on there, and now I'm panicking about whether it's me or her who gets put to the sword now this has been divulged
