Help -- Slopes and Inclines UGH!
Hi Ladies, back for more advice. Just got my license and have been riding around my neighborhood. Getting better with shifting (3rd gear up to 35 mph), controlled stops and turning (still a little wide on some). Just when I think I'm improving, I discover a new issue -- slopes and inclines (haven't even thought of or dare to try hills). The sensation of rolling back even on a small incline scares the heck out of me. So much so that in anticipation of an incline at a stop sign, I stopped too abruptly, lost balance and laid the bike down. When I was 16 (54 now), and started driving a stick shift, I always had issues with hills. Now I find that I have this same issue with riding. Not sure how to overcome my fear and how to get the bike moving from a stop on a slope or incline without stalling the bike (which I have done several times). Please, any advice would be welcomed. Not sure I could survive without Her Motorcyce, this forum and all of you. Thanks.
