Pic A Day - March 28th 2009

Boots

Today I did some motorbike training. Very difficult - I've got the roadsense, but the mechanics of controlling a bike is tricky - and I had to use a lot of thought to do some of the basic tasks which I just do when in a car or on a bicycle.

Each limb has its own job (gears-left foot, clutch-left hand, back brake-right foot, throttle and front brake-right hand). All four limbs need coordination. I found my bicycle knowledge got in the way, especially when it came to the clutch as I'd want to use it as the rear brake!

I came home very tired indeed - it was a long day of concentration!

This is a shot of my footwear for the day, and my picture of the day for the 28th March, 2009.
