Greetings all

Greetings all,

I’m new to motorcycling. Recently took the plunge and got rid of the ugly 4 wheel tin i’ve been driving around in and got my CBT.

2 weeks ago i bought a Yamaha YBR 125 Custom from Metropolis in Vauxhall to learn on. It’s a great looking bike! I’m trying to find an area in West London where i can practice maneuvers like figures of 8, turns, etc. on the weekends. Just wondering if anyone can recommend a place where i could practice, like an unused industrial estate or a car park on a Sunday.

P.S. The ride home from Vauxhall Bridge to Ealing on the bike with virtually no experience of a geared bike is something i will never forget!! Thankfully i made it home!! It’s getting easier each time i go out on the bike!!!
