First Ride Since…

With trepidation I mounted a motorbike for my first ride since my accident. Turns out, it wasn’t so bad at all.A call from the lovely Katherine, a fellow Easy Rider who works at Honda Rider Training, presented me with the opportunity to get back on a motorbike in a controlled environment. The event showcased Honda’s LAMS range, allowing riders to test ride motorbikes on its closed course rather than the open road.

Upon arrival, I was presented with the opportunity to jump on one of HART’s own bikes, a CB125 to help myself feel comfortable, their standard approach to those who have just received their learner licence but it worked for me.

It did feel a bit strange, back on a motorbike, wrist still sore and my grip strength still not quite right but I took a deep breath and just went for it. And everything was fine. After a few circuits of the skid pan, I rode the road circuit where the test rides were to happen, also ok although I was quite cautious on the corners.

Next up was the CB300,

followed by a Grom (I don’t have a pic of this one), CB500…

finishing with the CMX500.

I’ll give my verdict on those bikes in another post but I left the test ride feeling just a little taller and much more confident, looking forward to get back to riding on the wide open road and all the ‘excitement’ that has to bring.
