[QUOTE=shrtbus;658146] i have never driven a bike any advice for me QUOTE]

Wecome, bike looks nice.
Couple of points you may wish to remember, you dont drive a bike you ride it,& you will now realise how stupid all car drivers (who dont ride bikes)are towards bikers no matter what gender you are.
Stay safe & take it easy, its amazing how a twist of the wrist can get you in trouble, in the right circumstances it can also get you out of a sticky stituation.

If Carsberg make one I'll have mine shaved.

I have 2 toys one is my bike the other smells of fish

The best advice I can give you........TAKE THE CLASS!! Even people that have been riding for years take the class and learn new stuff. And being a newbe the class is geared for you...it will teach you and give you self confidence. I took it back in August and it was so worth it, the instructors were awesome too!

Yes, DEFINITELY take the MSF class. Do not let your husband attempt to teach you himself. No good will come of it, trust me.
