2009 Yamaha V-star 1300
Deb's first ride...
Here I am on my first ride after getting my motorcycle license in September of 2011. I'm riding the Yamaha V-star 1300 that we originally bought for my husband and I very quickly took over after getting my license and determining that he needed a big bike. I was riding around in my neighborhood while my husband stood outside the house. When I came back to the house, I asked him if he felt like he was saying good bye to his bike. He laughed and said now it would cost us another bike. I'm hoping to pick him up something larger this year and then we can ride together. I was sorry I hadn't gotten my license years ago so that I could have ridden with my father while he was alive. I rode with him on a variety of motorcycles and scooters as a kid and forgot how fun it was. My husband was very proud of me at this point - he had a great experience in the HD Riders Edge course and encouraged me to take it, and I was proud to pass my exam on the first shot. I am looking forward to spring weather and to be able to get out and ride.
