Today, there was one road that brought back a great memory from my rider training. It was the first time I went out on a 600cc bike—a Hornet—and there was a specific road that I recall. The instructor asked me to give the throttle a squeeze within the speed limit. The acceleration felt quick as the bike erupted up the road. Looking back, it wasn't rapid. The situation was well engineered by the instructor as the gear he instructed me to use wasn't so low that I would fall off bike the back. However, it set my heart racing, and today that memory came hurtling back when I was on the same stretch of road.
