So I did a fair amount of research over the week, and came to the conclusion that I need to actually talk to a living human being about taking a CBT. So I had a walk around the corner and into 1st Gear ( and spoke to the lovely lady in there. I admitted I knew less than nothing about motorcycles, and asked her to please not laugh at me. She kindly didnt, but gave me lots of advice about where to start, what to look at, etc.

One day later, I came back and booked in for a CBT with them. I’m all booked up for the 16th! Looking forward to it, but nervous.

My logic is this. The course is a whole day. I’ve paid £100 for it, and where else can you get a whole day of tutoring including a fun experience of doing something you’ve never done before? If I don’t like it, I wont take it any further. If I do, I’ll carry on. Simples!
