To be honest, part of me wonders if I get the thing, will all I do is look at it in the garage. I mean, going from a parking lot on a Honda doing no more than 22mph while being supervised by MSF instructors is a far cry from going out on the streets of my neighborhood and trying to practice. Rather embarrassing, but true. Have a great November!
Hey Mike, Same here. Father of 3. One in the Navy, one in the army. Third still a teenager. My mother freaked me out as a kid. Was bad enough I got a tattoo at Kept it secretly for another 2 years. I decided I want to ride again. Starting lessons today, woke up last night in a panic. Under enemy fire, been in terrorist attacks, when that shit happens I get an adrenaline rush and respond accordingly….
A lot of people have legitimate fears about riding a motorcycle for the first time so I appreciated the honesty in this article. I like that you gave yourself some time to come to terms with the fears of riding instead of completely giving up right away. One of the thing things that helped my brother is taking lessons for motorcycling to ease him into it.
I lack the spacial awareness in a car to feel comfortable and I have more of it on a two wheeled vehicle. So when my Jetson finally bit the dust I bough a Jonway from a local, its a scooter and I was excited to ride it when I slid a few times on the snow and slush. Bottom line, we sold it. But…two months back I got a Nightster and I was so excited!! I can touch the ground flat footed and it makes such a difference, the seats great, should be no problem, right. Any ideas or suggestions? I really want to ride and am not giving up. My husband has ordered baffles for the pipes, they are straight and very very loud.
Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, Michelle. I have terrible anxiety before I ride. Not often in the past 2 yrs. Each and every time I get anxious before I get on my bike. I love riding! Sky diving, hang gliding, riding. I literally get the shakes.

I am so happy I am not the only one!!!!! I ended up dropping the damn thing at 15 mph. While trying to make a right turn, I grabbed the front brake because I was heading towards a tree and I panicked! Needless to say I failed the class. But I will not quit!!!! Before I get on, I do some exercises to get out all of that nervous energy. Lastly, I set small goals for myself, and practice every day the weather permits, in my small neighborhood. I am still not able to get over 25 MPH, but one day I will! Baby Steps! Motorcycles are in my blood.

If you hold a motorcycle learner's permit, you may practice driving a motorcycle or motor driven cycle. A motorcycle learner's permit is valid for one year. If your motorcycle learner's permit expires it is no longer valid, and you must apply for a new permit by taking the motorcycle knowledge test again.. You are only allowed to renew your permit once.
