Breakthrough Riding Day!
Well, I just wanted to gush. I have really been struggling with some maneuvers. Basic ones, like turning, breaking, Yep, all the essentials. I dropped my bike a few weeks ago,and while at the time I wasn't distressed about it, I have found that as I am riding it is always on my mind. I am always nervous and apprehensive on the bike. My husband has been worried watching me ride because he could see my bike had control of me, I didn't have control of the bike. I bought the video "Ride Like a Pro",watched it and went back to the parking lot for more practice. MAN! That is what I needed. I learned to use the "friction zone", I practiced for about 2 hrs and then went on a ride with my hubby. He was blown away. He said he could totally tell I was so much more in control of my bike. I was smiling the whole way. I didn't white knuckle the whole trip LOL. I didn't feel nervousness, only happiness... and that is the way it should be. I will practice these exercises for some time and then apply them on the road. I am soooo happy!
