I am soooo scared! Help!
Got my permit, got my helmet, jacket and boots. Took the written part of the motorcycle safety course and passed with flying colors. Got out on the range and FROZE!!!! Actually steamed up the inside of the helmet, lol!
I bought a bike and it is an automatic. I know all of you out there with standard bikes are laughing at this point because riding an automatic should be simple. But, I have never in my life ridden anything with a motor other than a car. I am TERRIFIED to give it any throttle whatsoever. I can't get myself to go fast enough to put my feet on the pegs.
My boyfriend is so patient with me, I can't believe it. Went to a parking lot and I was able to ride about 15' three times and then I had to stop because I was going into a full-blown panic attack. He said fine, we'll do it again when you're ready.
How can I get over that fear of actually moving. 5 miles per hour feels like 105 to me!
