Do You Have What It Takes To Ride With A Diva ?

I gave up on my beginner's motorcycling course when it dawned on me that all the so called 'beginners' were not beginners at all. All of them had some experience, some had years (!) and I had zero! I was having a hard time keeping up so I quit! Instead, my boyfriend has been coaching me and I am now riding on the road, albeit back roads. Made my first 15 mile trip last Saturday following my boyfriend. Last night I went out in my community for a half hour ride alone...heart pounding all the way, but I did it! I am hooked. I bought a Harley Sportster 1200 but then decided it was too big for a total beginner, so got a Honda Rebel. I will continue with my Honda until I feel comfortable to get on the Harley. Seeing other women riding all kinds of bikes, big and small, has given me the confidence that I can do it too. I thank all those women out there who have paved the way for beginners like me! P.S. I so not know how to upload (download) pictures...without the help of my son...so forgive me my picture. It isn't me of course, but something one of my students downloaded. I will hopefully replace it later!

Congrats on the 15 mile trip,  I took Honda Riders Course and it was so kool.  Got my license, but still don't have bike.  With me being so shot (no legs)  I enjoyed bein on Honda Rebel.  It is made for me..lol

My boyfriend is lookin to buy new Harley so he is gonna give me his.  Sporty 883 Low.  Wish me luck, I have never been on road, hills, or speed.  Be safe!!!!!

I too, was a bit intimidated at the MSF class...I quit after the first day.  I returned several months later and passed. Yes, most of the students already had riding experience and I had none!  But I made it through. My husband (who has ridden for 30 plus years) bought me a

Ducati M 696 as my first bike, because I just HAD to have a "sport bike"!  WOW, I think it is more than I can handle and I haven't left the parking lot yet...I sort of wish I had a Rebel 250 so I could at least venture out a bit...maybe this weekend I will take the Duc around the neighborhood, heart pounding and all...but I must say...I LOVE IT!
