That's why people start out on bikes without engines.
Do you remember falling off your bike when you were learning to ride it as a kid?It's not instinctive, you find out the hard way what happens if you get it wrong. That's why people start out on bikes without engines.[/quote]I think that is just a developmental thing like hand to eye coordination...as a kid you cant catch a ball...you have to practice ... the reason we fall off a bike when we first learn to ride is because we haven't yet convinced ourselves that we can actually balance on two wheels ..childlike logic tells us that we can't.. I once witnessed an adult aged 32 get on a bicycle for the very first time and,, apart from abit of a wobble s,, she could actuallly ride it without having to learn
