First ride, and it is wonderfull
I took my first 1 1/2 hour ride today. a month ago, I took the MSF course, after that I sepnt couple of weeks just riding around the block, to practice emergency stops and changing gears.
Yesterday I ran out of gas, so I had to go to the gas station this morning. I filled the bike with gas, then I had to stop by a pharmacy for ear blogs; I was going deaf from the wind.
Then, I took about an hour riding in a back rural road crusing at about 50 MPH. It was amazing experiece, and I really start loving the sport.
now, I have few questions:
1- When I go close to 60 MPH I feel a lot of wind resistance to my body, like someone is pushing me back. Is it the way it is, or I should lower my head?
2- After the ride, I feel a little fatigue in my right shoulder, and my palms, specially the left one close to the index finger. What I could possibley be doing wrong?
almost forgot to mantion I am seen 3 fellow riders on the road, and all of them waved to me. No one told me that I should wave to fellow riders. The first one, I was afraid to take my hand off the handel bar, so I shaked my head. Then, I waved to the other two.
I like that, make me feel like I have friends on the road.
Is there anything I should know regarding the gesture to the fellow riders?
