Newbie woman rider from Albany, GA

Hi all! My husband has a 2004 Hayabusa and that is where I got the bug. For years I was the backseat rider. Never driven a bike in my life, wanted to learn, so I bought me a 2002 Yamaha R1 (ebay) early last year practiced some then in Dec. 2006 I took the Motorcycle Riders Course at the marine base (3 day class). Passed, got my license and started riding. I love it! My husband and I are total gearheads.

Welcome! That's a heck of a "starter" bike. Shiny side up!

Not a very forgiving bike for a first. Whatever floats your boat. Get some miles under your belt and hand your husbands ass to him in the twisties

Welcome, and be safe.

I love when my wife goes on rides with me, just the 2 of us.
And I love it when our buddys go to, they all tell me how lucky I am. But I allreddy knew that.
