I am about to start driving lessons soon, but I really want to take motorbike lessons instead. My mum is going a bit OTT but at the end of the day it is my choice. My main reasoning, is that my halls at uni doesn't have car parking but has bike shed/garage thingys. I just want to know, how hard is it to learn compared to driving, is it really that unsafe? How does it compare on fuel price etc?
