Yeah, she's smart and always concerned about safety. However, she knows absolutely nothing about motorcycles, and got scared when I told her that I wanted one. She had all kinds of questions about the different kinds of bikes and safety and gear and insurance. I've been a kind of motorcycle nut for the last three years, always doing enough research to get excited only to be deflated again when seeing the price tags at dealerships. But now that I'm out of college and (semi-)working, I will soon have enough money to afford a bike (insurance, gear, lots of gas cause I would ride it almost everyday all day because I am a crazy fanatic type).
I have always wanted to take the MSF course, because I like to be comfortable when trying new things, and it is obviously the best way to get comfortable on a bike. Probably even better than if your friend trains you on his because I would still be afraid of dropping it, not that I even have a friend with a bike. In any case, I have wanted to take the MSF for years, couldn't because in Maryland they have waiting lists past the summer, and was only home from college in the summer. Now I'm in Tennessee and my class is one week from today (sweet).
I won't be taking my girlfriend (or anyone) for a ride for quite some time. I need to make sure I can keep myself safe before I start worrying about anybody else. Plus she's scared. Ha.
