Not so much a helmet, more a numpty hat…

First ride-out with my IAM observer this morning. Went well – within two roundabouts I’d got confused about which exit counted as “straight on” and lost him. The second section started with me leaving my left-hand indicator on for half a mile or so. The third section included me landing with both wheels in the mother of all potholes and turning my vertebrae to powder. On the plus side, I have scored 5 for “Progress: Other Areas” which means I have no fear on rural roads and dual carriageways; and I scraped a 3 for “Restraint” by giving a big cheery wave to the person that stopped at the traffic calming chicane. That leaves me with 16 other “attributes” to master. We could be at this for some time…
