Status update - a few steps closer! Chasing the motorcycle dream.

This is me about 7 months post motorcycle novice course, spring 2012, I was running a cone course on Scarlett at an alumni event.  

The bulk of my course is finished and I've written my school's exam & our local government exam and passed those.  

I want to do nothing less than my very best at teaching and give my future students the tools to be safe, competent, confident, and well trained motorcyclists who are committed to excellent road craft when out on their bikes.  

I owe a big thanks to a few people along my instructor path, my 3 instructor trainers who have been rock solid and imparted their moto knowledge.  

The biggest thanks though really goes to my family, because they have ridden along with me on this journey when it started in January 2011 on a little 50cc scooter, through motorcycle courses, exams, licensing and finally being moto orphans since September 2014 when I was busy learning to teach. It has been quite a ride and I still can't believe I have really only been riding for 3 years and am now embarking on a new phase of my motorcycle adventure.  Stay tuned! Wish me luck, my practicum is at the end of March.
