Thank You! Yes that is exactly what I am doing, just visualising myself doing it successfully. I struggle with clutch /throttle ratio, so I have just been on the bike in the driveway playing around with that. The visualise myself succesfully stopping and starting. It makes me feel better to hear other stories. I appreciate your advice and I really do want to ride again and become a confident rider.sapaul wrote:Hi Hot Granny, If I may offer some advice that may help. With both men and women that I have assisted that have had accidents, there is a common and normal trait. The same one you mention.
Please try to turn that same visualisation from the negative to the positive. Pick a location a short ride away, your favourite coffee shop for example, and then visualise yourself outside the shop on your bike. Visualise yourself riding on that route, visualise riding the bike as you have been taught. Then go for that ride and keep the visualisation going.
We have a little saying here when we teach.
"Look there, Go there"
Think more about where you want to be than how you will get there. Most of what you have learned will come automatically. Good luck.
