If at first you don't succeed...
OR end up learning to ride on one of the hottest days of the year....

Yep - I had to give in just past nooon and admit I couldn't go on. I came close to fainting twice out in the parking lot while watching demos of the next lesson. Pretty scary, though not a total surprise. I've always been sensitive to extremes in heat and fainted several times at summer outdoor activities as a child. Not what you want to do while riding a motorcycle.

Soooo, they're going to assign me to another weekend when, hopefully, the weather will be cooler!!!

I'm happy to report, though, that before my body got all cranky, I did manage to start up, ride, change gears and stop my little 125cc motorcycle! Which is more than I could do at this time yesterday.

Yes, my ego is bruised, but it would have been sheer folly to keep going and hurt myself or worse, someone else.

So - that's my day!

Hope everyone has a good weekend :-)

Reminds me of driving a three wheeler and managing to run over one of my legs. LOL Donna
