I passed mod1 on Fridy and then failed mod2 on Monday so i am half way through just ave to wait the 10 days till i can do mod2 again... advice for mod2 is to just make sure you do all your checks and signals and just ride as safe as you can, the route itself is not usually very hard and around 30-40mins depending on traffic and involved all kinds of riding situations... junctions, roundabouts and little side roads in different ways.

Yeah don't crawl round just keep a medium pace going through slalom and take a wide line when doing figure 8 as when tight likely to put foot down. On u turn just take your time and look round and do not look at the line but down the end of the course otherwise your likely to go on the line. On quick moves I was going around 23-25 round the bend and just full throttle in 2nd once on straight. Examiner gives clear instructions so just listen to him relax and you'll be done in less than 10 mins.
