I took the Harley Riders Edge course in April 2011, passed the test, the state came the next day to test for our license and I dropped the bike on the right hand turn! Needless to say I did not get my license. Developed a fear, bought an 883 sportster, drove it down the drive and could not go any further, then bought a Buell to practice more,-which is what I learned on. My husband and I went riding a few times, him on the Harley and me on the Buell. My question.....how do I overcome my fear of driving the Harley-Davidson? It's bigger, heavier and I am afraid of dropping and afraid I will fail the state test again.
I have a CBR 600 F4, clutch cable broke and I got a pro motion cable and can't get it to adjust right. I took it off and pushed the swing arm on top of clutch and started it to see if the clutch was engaged but its like the clutch ain't engaged. Would it need a new clutch or am I missing something. Figured its easy both cables are the same but its to loose or tight. Im just getting frustrated with it.
