And here we have brother Dai who obtained his cager, I mean driving licence today with a first time pass, despite his advancing years.
It only needed me to speak softly, quietly encourage him and gently convince him that he had the necessary skills.
Oh, and get him to shut his gob and stop telling me how I should be teaching him to drive!
BTW this was the aforementioned ejit that prevented me getting away early this weekend.

Dai

I think these young fellows are jealous of what us oldies can achieve in our advancing years.....

Would I be right in thinking Comberjohn has acquired more new wheels in the form of a sporty hatchback??????? Hard to keep up with these young fellows...

Aye, well: I wouldn't have bothered but for the proposals to make getting your car license far more difficult over here. I agree with all of the new proposals but I just decided they weren't catching me with them. As it is, despite forty years on the bikes, for the next year I'm still stuck with a big red 'R' front and rear, no access to motorways and a maximum speed of 45 mph.

All joking aside, John prepared me well for the test; so much so that I actually found myself enjoying doing it.

That's a pretty good description. I used to fly light aircraft years ago but a number of circumstances put paid to that permanently. Last year my wife bought me an hour's microlighting and after getting over the fear of no cage around me, I was hooked on the low'n'slow.

Dai you should have come to France with us.

Bikerboy, a former forum member and who spent a fair bit of time with us, has an airfield near Rouffignac St Cernin and microlights and flies them. Most of the aerial photos in the vicinity are taken by Bob and his wife Jude. Will is leaving his K75 down with him for occasional visits. ...........

I haven't tried the microlighting yet but did a lot of hang gliding and some paragliding and low 'n slow is to be highly recommended. However a microlight is anything but slow as you will discover.
