    Oops, better start a new thread.

    It's come to my attention I'd forgot there's
    two kinds of Direct Access.

    There's the one which resembles a structured
    training program in which formalised learning
    and bespoke feedback are provided over a
    length of time which stands a fair chance of
    remaining usable and accessible in the average

    And there's the one which is a kind of costly
    executive mini-break in which, effectively, a
    license is bought for a fair wodge of cash and
    the showing of a dubious and often inconsistent
    level of riding competence.

    Although my own goes back before the days
    of radio control and I did indeed jump straight
    on a bike the day I got the thing and learnt what
    I could from the ground up until I'd found out
    about the various options in the locality, and I
    do agree that it makes more sense to get good
    training on the kind of bike you'll eventually end
    up riding for the first couple of years rather than
    a flimsy extremely low-powered crate which is
    only really good for the shops and work and back
    (albeit genuinely really good for said applications),
    I'm still not convinced the latter produces calm,
    relaxed riders who aren't particularly out for a
    rev-off against any flash harry riding the fastest
    plastic their money will buy.

    So hello there.

    The first kind of Direct Access I kind of think is
    an optimal solution.

    Old farts who can't follow threads and got their
    own ticket for 15 Green Shield Stamps and a
    handwritten request to the Minister of Transport
    need not feel compelled to follow up.

    It's a new toy for UKRM to play with. Try not to break it on the first

    So where do we shove the batteries?

    It appears to be wind powered. If it hangs around then I'm sure it will be
    upgraded to "up" status.
