After 30 miles on slippery roads in the freezing cold my examiner gave me the good news. I made a couple of minor mistakes but overall he said it was a very good ride. I can now look forward to receiving my certificate welcoming me as a full member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists (motorcycle).
On the naff side, the cold I picked up at the weekend has now taken firm hold and I feel like dying 😦
My quick preparation and first time pass is mainly thanks to the observers at Middlesex Advanced Motorcyclists, whose feedback and advice have been extremely valuable. Thanks chaps!
