Default Two people want to learn (finally)


My girlfriend's 10 year old niece came to visit and was very interested
in my uni. A couple of us held her on either side and rolled her around
(very labor intensive.) The next day she wanted to do that again, and I
said, why don't you really try to learn instead of us rolling you on it?
So I gave her some shin pads, wrist guards and my helmet, put the seat
in the lowest position and set her up between 2 cars. We did several
sessions over the 5 days she was here.

She was very sad to leave it, but secretly her mom asked her dad to get
his old uni from grandma's garage...

Also a local adult friend told me she wants me to teach her. I'm so
happy!

Really odd, but I seem to agree with you on this one...

We're probably both crazy.

Gents, just to be clear, the cars weren't moving.

Well, yeah, I kinda assumed that . It's just that I'm 21 and about a
level 5 and my parents are still a little uneasy about me riding even
-close- to the cars for fear that I might scratch one. The thought of
hearing a beginner ride between two cars makes me think that either 1.
the cars are junk anyway, 2. the parents -really- trust the child, or 3.
don't really car about the cars!!

I was right behind her the whole time. Bumping into the cars was
minimal. Besides, I don't really care about my car and didn't tell my
girlfriend about the potential danger to hers!
