My names Ben, Currently living in Cambridgeshire... and im VERy new to bikes in general.

As of when Im posting this, I do not currently own a bike, but the one you see on my profile (The Lifan Apollo) should be with me by this friday. I placed my £1000 Deposit on it the other day, brand new bike, and they are building it as we speak! :) Cant wait!(Pictured below)


Also, I havent yet done my CBT, I have it booked for Friday morning so if all goes well... I hope to be on the roads friday afternoon. Any tips and guidance on the CBT would be MUCH appreciated also.

Currently, Im driving a Proton Wira, which during these hard times has become impossible to run on the high tax/insurance/fuel Prices we all know and hate, hence my move into the 2 wheel world. (Picuted Below)

I will also, once I get the equipment. Will start doing vlogs :D, not sure how the best way to get it done is... But I guess that will come in time to me :)

So yeah, that's my story. Hope to become active on here and have an all round good time!

-Ben Taylor

Welcome to Motovlog and welcome to biking, I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

As for advice on the CBT I can't really give you any. Just listen to the instructor and have a good day riding around! There isn't really any technique to help you pass, it is just a chance to familiarise yourself with motorcycles and make sure you are safe.

Good luck for Friday :)

Thanks man, I hear they are pretty hard to fail anyway. Mate of mine went the wrong way round a roundabout and still passed!

Welcome to motovlog :) brave move buying a chinese machine! when you do get round to making your youtube channel it's always better to hide your name, and i'd give it a few weeks after your cbt before you start vlogging too, in those few weeks you'll need to concentrate on riding and you really don't need your attention split 50/50, which vlogging probably will :)
