Red face Will I forget?

I learned to drive a standard transmission on my Shelby, and yes I'm certain I can do it again......I just hate to be hard on the car!!

You think I'll still have a good handle on it by late springtime, when I can finally drive it again?!?

I was just getting the hang of it when winter started sneaking in.....!!!

You may be a little rusty during the first day driving it again but that'll go away after that first day most likely. That's how I am with my motorcycle. I'll have it put up during the winter (like right now ) and when I go to drive it again in a few months I may lug the engine a few times or kill it during that first day. But after that I'm good to go again.

Yes, I can still ride a bicycle, but it doesn't have quite the same "vroom" as the gt500~!

This time next year you can ask if I still know how to ride a motorcycle....I'm going to quit being a wimp & try to learn!

You will probably be rusty for a week or so, but it will come back quick. Try to wear the same shoes the first week while you are relearning to drive (I know your a girl and that's probably hard haha). I put some of those gel things in my shoes and that extra thickness messed up my rev matching and smoothness upshifting for a good week or so.
