I started riding a year ago but I'm still a beginner. I am currently riding in a lesson with 2 people who need to go for the level above the one I need to go for, so it's stressful. I have just learned 2-point and they are doing small jumps, so it's hard on me, specially with an instructor trying to get the best out of me but going about it wrong by assuming I know what to do, and just don't "listen"....but then again she's not the best full-time instructor, because she doesn't seem to understand the need to talk to people and work up a case as to why you can't/won't do something so you can both figure out why it's not happening properly...she for some reason just assumes that when she says something that you can instinctively do it then, and forever after without being kindly reminded, not yelled at.
But I recommend lessons, they help you fix what needs to be fixed, and NOT pick up bad habits, because you know we all do, who here constantly and always drives with there hand on the wheel? I know I'm a beginner driver and I keep falling into that trap haha
