Four days ago I got for the first time on my Silvio. It was a sunny afternoon, but awfully cold and windy. I did some rolling downhill and put my feet on the pedals. But most of the time it was the bike who decided in which direction we went. Today finally spring showed up in our country. Temperature was up and I was good for a second try. After half an hour things fell in place, I realized several starts on flat and slight slopes, some of them acceptably straight. Also, taking considerable space, I did successfully a couple of figure 8. I realized that a little sitting up helps a lot for starts and turns. Also getting quickly up to some speed stabilizes the bike as well as the rider.
