Hello my darlings I hope you all had an amazing weekend & a great start to your week!
so your probably wondering what the hell my blog post title is about ?! well angels, I used to ride a motorbike and after riding for 4 years I decided it was time to sell her and crack on with my driving test, it was a hard decision in one part because she was my therapist, my hobby and my little bit of me time. And of course it was also a fairly easy decision to sell her because driving meant I could of course take my little boy out on trips, on the school run (when weather was super miserable) and to see friends and family. now your probably like oh wow ok isn’t a bike a bit risky? well yes of course its risky but many of the accidents that occur are ones that are caused by other road users failing to look properly for bikes. On the other hand after riding I found I had already become twice more aware and twice as vigilant, having been on both sides.
Now seeing as ive been driving for a little while I thought it was time to get back on a motorbike… but this time I’m going for my direct access (DAS)! (yippee!!) so this means I am getting my bike licence (cat A) and am doing this in 2 parts, first a mod 1 and then a mod 2.
Um so what’s a mod 1&2?
The mod 1 is the practical test modules, where you undertake a series of exercises, showing your ability to control and use your bike safely and correctly.even though your mod 1 is carried out in a training area, you would treat it as if you were on the road.
The mod 2 is the bit on the road, so very similar to your driving test where you will go in the direction your instructor tells you to go and there is a small part of independent riding.
if you pass both? welcome to heaven!! a beautiful array of bikes in all shapes colours and engine sizes!! this is one of my personal favourite things!
I carried out my 1 day of training for my mod 1 last sunday and it was absolutely incredible!!! it really was such a big difference and has got me very excited to start my journey of getting back to two wheels!!
so there you have it my darlings. I hope you enjoyed this , stay tuned as I am going to be doing a special series of posts all around mental health, my first one will be about postnatal depression and as someone who has suffered with it I am eager to get into it and try give you some (hopefully) useful information on the illness.
Thank you for taking time to read and take care!
