First time I drove an automatic was last year on holiday. I kept slamming the brakes really hard. Couldn't work out why then I realised I was using my left foot to do it :lol:
Easily done... Someone told me the first time you drive an automatic bring your left foot under the seat, saves some embarrassment :thumb:

Then when I had the scooter the first time I stopped I pulled the "clutch" (read brake on scooter) in came to a most unfaltering halt nearly dropped it :angel12:

For a long time I would occasionally pull the clutch in to change gear normally when going for an overtake, it does not have the desired affect :shock: .

My notd goes to the infinity driver who was tailgating me and flashing headlights on the a19 yesterday when we were returning home after taking the baby out for some fresh air and then because I was not far from overtaking another vehicle decided that it was the best idea to undertake me and cut back in front almost taking the front of the car out......🤬🤬🤬 I wanted to physically kill him
Its better when its loaded

Someone is complaining their bike got nicked locally.

Honestly, if this is the kind of security you think is adequate for your machine then what can you seriously expect?

When i went for my theory yesterday and parked in town, i had a disc lock, wire rope type lock and chain and padlock and parked at the proper MC bay and chained to the bollards, there were 2 other bikes there and only one had a chain on it, all three were still there though when i came back :lol: :thumb:

This is why I love living in the countryside of Scotland.
I can leave the bike with the keys on ignition and sit in the cafe :thumb:
All my food only eat vegetables. So, I'm an indirect vegetarian :cool:

All problems have a solution.
You just need to figure it out :)

Hmm I remember sitting in a pub garden with @Six30 and being safe with my keys in the ignition like you say.
Mind you it was only safe as I flattened the battery and had to bump start it lol :roll:
