You ladies are making me want to cry... I have had a bad itch to get back on a bike lately!!!

I've not been active much lately since all I have left is a Buell Blast, which is currently taking up valuable real estate in the minibarn.

I had an '00 F4, but it was stolen and then my husband and I started getting into other financial and familial obligations that have, by necessity, put the want for new bikes on the back burner.

Give me a few more years and I have a feeling I will be getting another bike.

I'll share.

I was always afraid of motorcycles and my now ex really wanted one. Knowing his ego I didn't want him to have one because he would not be very careful and I didn't want anything to happen to him. Well long story short, my ex decided one woman wasn't enough and we got divorced. I decided then to face my fears. I figured what the hell and took MSF. I really enjoyed riding during the course and decided then to get a bike. I bought my V-strom a few weeks later and after a rough start (6 drops in one month) I took a break over the winter and started back this spring. I have a new roommate that I just started dating and he has been very patient and helpful. He has spent many hours in the hot sun in a parking lot practicing what I learned in MSF and pointing out mistakes that I made. I am now getting comfortable and confident on my bike and look forward to a lot more riding. Hope to see some of y'all at the rally.

how I got started

let's see...

I'm kind of an adrenaline junkie and I really like intense sports (like I play ice hockey for example) I dated a lot of MX and sport bike guys and rallies and races just made my heart pound! I was always a passenger and never a driver and decided to take the MSF course. It was so fun and I was actually a little bored at points! I got 100% on both my skills and written and was at the DMV as soon as it opened the next day.

I worked super hard and saved all year long to buy a new CBR and it's so of me to do but after sitting on thousands of bikes and reading and touching and playing and looking, it's the one I knew I needed to have. Seriously I'm in love and I look forward to a long and happy relationship with my bike!

I know the feeling, I am in love with my bike too. I used to joke with my hubby that I would sleep in the garage if it had AC... just so I could stair at it all night. hee,hee. He got me riding and he has created a monster.
