Another day of bike class

It was good. We took a different route this time. Gotta take a different route everyday. Suggested Kishore that we take some time someday and do a hour long session or so. Lets us see.

Third day of bike learning class

Today was my third day of my bike learning tutorial, class whatever you call it. It was good. I drove from our office to Ghansoli, from there to Koparkhairane petrol pump to main road and back to office. It all took may be 30 minutes.

I feel more confident and slowly trying to sync the speed-gear and clutch-break thing. All in all its good. One thing that I found to be of great help is your trainer's confidence in you and suggestions while riding. Kishore is good in it.

We also did an enquiry about getting my learning license. It seems I have to take it from Mulund(Thane RTO). Will have to catch hold of some agent. Atya is a good sourcer for anything in Mumbai.

Good luck yogi!

Second day of bike learning

Wow! I rode the bike from our office, Millennium Business Park to Ghansole, Gharonda, where my colleague used to stay earlier. He is learning to drive a four wheeler.

My first lesson was withing our office premises, Millennium Business Park. Today was the second day.

I rode all the way from the crowd in MBP, to the main road, the flyover connecting Ghansoli and into the building. All in all, it was a great experience. I feel more confident now :) yay!

This clutch and break thing has to kinda get wired in to the brain.
  1. When you dunno what to do, just hold the clutch and the break.
  2. When the speed is low, change the gear to lower ones and higher ones when there is enough speed. Basically the bike should not give jerks.
I have asked my colleague to get his bike in the mornings and I take it to his house in the afternoon(that way I learn to ride bike) and he gets his car to office and back to home(that way he learns to drive)

Smart huh!
