Brand new rider
(Pembroke Pines, Florida)
I just got my motorcycle endorsement yesterday (Wednesday)!I purchased a 750 Honda Shadow on Friday. I was so excited after sucsessfully finishing my class. As soon as I got home I started up my new Bike and took it for a few spins around the block. I did love the feeling but at the same time, I was scared, the power and weight compared to the 250 I trained on was huge. Will the fear ever go away? How long before I get use to the weight and power difference? When I was training on the 250 it only took about 30 minutes before I was comfortable on it, by the second day I was puttin around like it was second nature and just wanted to take off faster. The feeling was a bit different on my 750.
