Sarah - Kawasaki - Childhood Memories Of Biking
One of my first memories of motorbikes is riding pillion with my Dad as he picked me up from school on his Ninja. It used to annoy me then, as I couldn’t have a little nap on the way home.
When I was 16, I had my first solo experience on two wheels when I got my moped. I loved it as it allowed me to be more independent. You can ride a moped a year before you can drive a car so having one meant I could get on the road earlier than a lot of my friends. The one day CBT also meant that it was the quicker and cheaper option.
Fast forward a few years and a few cars later, and I finally fulfilled one of my bucket list challenges by completing my full motorbike licence.
It was at the beginning of last year, while sitting in stand still traffic on my commute to work, that I thought if not now, when? I finally had the time, money and drive to learn something new.
Getting my full licence was more challenging than I thought it would be, but now that I have my bike, I’m so glad I did it.
I did have big plans for my bike this year, but unfortunately on my first ride out on my new bike I had a collision and broke my foot. It’s been a bit of a setback but I’m lucky that it wasn’t any worse.
I’m getting back out there now, and looking forward to exploring London and the UK a lot more on the back of two wheels. There is so much you can do when riding a motorbike. I have a wish list as long as my arm! Up first, I think I might do an off road course, but there are also things like motorkhana and track days that I’m keen to try as well.
Riding a motorbike for me is a lifestyle choice and I can’t wait to see where it takes me.
