I am 56 years young and had always been a passenger, not any more!!!
Just a word of encouragement, I had never been on a bike even as a passenger until I was into my 50's. I fell in love with the ride. I started out with a Yamaha 650 with a Voyager kit, my husband said oh you will never learn to ride it! I showed him, I got on and have not slowed down since. I rode the 650 for about a year, sold it, bought a Royal Star 1300 put the Voyager kit on, had it painted pearl white with pearl pink flames front to rear and love every inch of it!! If I can do it so can anyone that really wants to ride. Just do it, go with GOD Speed and blessing!!!
You go Girl!!!!!
