Starting tomorrow I have to find my own way to work, so today I learned to ride a motorbike. I went to the shop to negotiate a monthly price. The lady gave me a very fair deal and included a brand new helmet.
From the shop I got on the bike and nearly crashed by pushing the gas too hard. I spent an hour riding up and down the street. I got chased by a dog and had to gain my confidence to go fast before he bit my foot.
After I had eaten some lunch I got back on the bike and decided that I would try to go to town. I had only been riding on little back roads without cars and such. I was a little scared to be riding with all of the people and cars around me but I knew I had to learn sometime and tomorrow I have to get on the highway for work.
Overall I don’t think I did a bad job. I crossed the road a few times, did a round about and hit some traffic lights. The more and more I practice the easier it gets and I love the feeling of knowing that I can easily move throughout the city now without have to walk and rely on the public buses or the school to get around.
