  1. The Honda scooter I was on for cbt had the switch closer to my knee than my hand tbh, that's why I'm looking at bikes more than scooters, so I can do one thing at once with each limb and not have to do absolutely everything with my left hand. I would also like to look into older bikes anyway, old cruisers are generally the only bikes with ideal seat height, look beautiful, centre of gravity etc. I am looking at throwing together my mum's old Honda 250 Rebel because if it fits her it's going to fit me, but it's mainly a job for now just throwing together a bike I can use and take to a carpark and actually get on a geared bike I fit on so I can learn the rhythm of that next. I'll have a look at smaller bikes you've suggested, thanks for letting me know it's maybe just the new Honda thing that made indicators the bane of my life this time round Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  2. I was told I HAD to drag the rear brake on corners instead of using throttle control and had to indicate off the roundabout. I tried to reach both but slipped off the rear brake and ended up in a hedge because I couldn't let go of the throttle quick enough. The day after I had a different instructor who actually listened and let me figure out throttle sensitivity and then go out on it that way because the previous instructor just didn't get that I couldn't physically reach both even on a 50cc scooter. Thankfully the second instructor who took me out for my cbt ride actually let me practice a different way of riding as a solution. Now I have to figure out how to make the bike I have fit me, it's about 2 inches too tall in seat height, the switches are about half an inch off the end of my thumb, and the levers don't adjust round enough and can't tighten for less travel enough so I physically can't get my finger tips around them at their position and travel distance Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  3. Mainly motorcycles, I don't find scooters as fun, especially twist and go Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  4. Might be there with Father Tickman, might not be there. Depends on how CBT goes for day 2 in a row on a bike I can't demonstrate control of based on not being able to reach the button to indicate left. If I'm not there, I'm crying in the bathroom [emoji108] Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  5. Do any verging on midget people (5ft with sub 2inches of thumb) recommend any mods or bikes themselves I might be able to get on with? Attempted taking my cbt today and no bikes were the right size, the smallest scooter they have still has the indicators about half an inch from where I need them to be to reach over and indicate to the left. Went on the road and had too many signalling errors due to not being able to flick it left to demonstrate that I can control a bike. If anyone has any suggestions so that I can feel less defeated and like my body isn't everything wrong with me ever, that would be nice. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
