Scared Beginning Rider
Me On My First Ride On My First Bike
I am writing because I am a new rider, I got my license in September of 09' & because weather started to get cold after I did not buy my first bike until Jan. 30, 2010. There's been nothing but cold & snow where I live & I only got to ride my bike in a large parking lot one time the other day. I absolutely love being on a motorcycle, it's a feeling like no other but when I am the driver, I have to admit I am pretty scared. I did ok the other day but turns still scare me & the thought of getting onto the actual street petrifies me. My question is how did all of you experienced biker chics get past this feeling?
Can anyone suggest in the New Jersey area any rider education courses or personalized instruction? I took the DMV course, passed that & want something a little more advanced. Any help, tips or suggestions would be much appreciated!
