    Default First Driving Lesson

    Well I can shove something in my dads face later today.
    I had my first driving lesson this morning and it seems that all those hours spent on LFS with the G25 paid off. Instructor said that my gear changes were smooth, my pedal control was smooth, my clutch balancing was excellent and my steering was presise.
    So dad you were wrong. Computer games would aid me in real life!

    Although the idea of a G25 helping your clutch balancing is fun, it really doesn't, the G25 clutch pedal has no 'biting' point, it's mostly guess work :/

    i'm doing my lessons soon, mum bought me 4 hours for my Bday i never used.

    i'm with BSM which means that you drive a corsa and get patronised whilst doing so. apparently the ones around here repeat everything a million times to drag out the lessons to make you pay for more.

    fortunately i've been on my bike for a while now and know the ways of the road, i got 48/50 in an online theory practice for the motorbike (only 2nd one i ever did) so hopefully i can cut out the dicking around and get into some driving

    My first lesson is tomorrow. I'm with a local driving school, 5 hours for 55, + first lesson free for first time drivers, and they don't seem to run Corsas either

    I'm now gonna chalk up some hours with my Logitech DFP on Gran Turismo 4 in a Micra on the Nurburgring. I'll just have to pretend I'm using the clutch and that the gear shifter is on the other side and that I'm stopping for traffic

    Well when you've got a big RWD family saloon that likes to slide the tail out at the drop of a pin it does make it a bit more challenging & fun..........& scary (oversteer stops being fun when your parallel to the direction you should be going)

    Yeah. An automatic is called failure in life. I hope you don't have one...

    And anyone who (in the UK) gets an auto-only licence deserves to be shot for being stupid.

    If you are trying to be sarcastic it isn't really working out for you. Unfortunatly, no one here said that homos were idiots :/

    bah

    Driving a Bike > Driving a car > Videogame

    leaning down to take a corner at full speed with wind rushing by and the machine making much noise is amazing.

    I like cycling. If you have a decent bike and are going downhill, nothing beats it. Ok, motorbikes go faster but they are bigger and you have to wear a space helmet. When I go cycling I wear a skin suit, for aerodynamic advantages and for the hell of it. A bike feels faster than a motorbike because there's very little to them. I did 57 miles the other weekend, and going downhill I hit 50 mph, it was brilliant

    QFT. When you are going fast on a bicycle, there is nothing there to stop you from being hurt a lot. On a motorbike, what hurts you is the tree you become great friends with, whereas on a bicycle, its the road itself. Great fun! Anyone ever tried to get a speeding ticket on one (past a speed camera) Unfortunately we don't have any near to us, so I haven't. Although it isn't as good as driving.
