    How hard is it to learn to ride a motorbike?

    Thinking of learning to ride a motorbike in a few years. I can only drive automatic cars, can't drive manual. Can someone who's learnt to ride a motorbike with no manual experience tell me how easy/difficult it was? Thanks.

    It is easy. IF you take your time and are careful. You should start with a small bike for your size and get comfortable using the clutch and gears. Start in first gear and use the clutch lots to go - stop - and go. Once you get used to the clutch, move on to changing gears and what not. It is imperative that you get use to changing gears without taking your eyes from the road, be it dirt, pavement or gravel. Practice makes perfect. Good luck and be safe.

    I found it easy, staying on the thing is easier than staying on a pedal cycle, lower centre of gravity.  Changing gear is just co-ordinating hand and foot movements, we do that all the time.
    Road sense is not so easy, remembering that the roads are filled with cars.  And cars, because of their construction, have blind spots; give them plenty of space.  It all comes with thought and experience.
