Don't wait too long !!!

by Elaine Matz
(Santa Clara, CA)

I sat behind my husband for 20+ years, riding on the back of his Honda 750 & then later on his Harley. My 2 grown daughters said they would not ride on the back, they wanted to ride alone. They convinced me to just "try it" by taking the motorcycle class, if I didn't like it I wouldn't need to go any further. Well at the ripe old age of 55, 2 motorcycles & over 12,000 miles later, I LOVE IT !!! My only regret is that I waited so long. I should have done it years before !!!! Don't wait like I did. I ride my bike to work when the weather is good, as long as it's not raining & too cold. I even ride it to do errands around town, parking @ the mall is great !!!

Better Late than Never

I agree. I got my license at age 21, but never had my own bike. Always rode on the back of my husband's. It was fun, but at 51 I put my foot down. Re-took the motorcycle course and now have may own ride. It's amazing, every ride, every time. My only regret is the last 30 years when I didn't have my own bike, but now I'm ready to make up for it. It's something for me and it's liberating, fun, and it feels like I've shed 20 years at least. It's a BLAST! Don't waste another day - go for it!
