You can also add S at the end to make it POWDERS with S for suspension

It was for slides yesterday.

As we left the car park I use the right wrist a bit too sharp and the big Versys stepped out on the dusty ground. The good thing about a heavy underpowered bike is that every thing tends to happen slowly, so no drama.

I've been told not to do it on my test.

Near perfect. I got pulled up for failing to overtake an HGV as we came off a roundabout. I started to but the hgv wasn't fully loaded so he booted it. It was only a 40mph so it was drop back or break the speed limit. I picked the latter. I should have read it better.

Sadly the check run wasn't done as the observer couldn't make it.

Thats a F1st mate, you picked the right course of action with tge lorry in my opinion, if you were to start your overtake and he booted it then without noticing you, then it would of ended badly for you, holding off and waiting isnt a bad thing. Well done buddy

You canot be faulted for complying with our favourite saying -

"If in doubt, hold back"

Other opportunities will always present themselves and you cannot be faulted having qualified why you decided not to go.

Right decision made (y)
