Thinking about trading or selling my Sporty ~ Any Suggestions?
I took the basic riders course last summer. Received my license in May, 2010. My husband surprised me with the bike before I took the class. He bought me what I have always wanted. A 2010 Iron 883 Sportster. My bike is beautiful. But my bike is so top heavy. I practiced on my bike in a empty parking lot and then around the neighborhood. I have put about 1,200 miles on my bike since I have gotten it. I have women that are willing to take me out and pratice.Which I have gone out a couple times with them. The last ride I went out with my husband I was ready to sell it right then. My husband likes to go fast. I don't. I am a flower sniffer. That is my riding style. I like to see my surroundings. Well I tried keeping up with him and it was not pretty. I dropped my bike for the first time. Ok, I joined I dropped my bike club. I learned my lesson that day. Ride your own ride! My problem is that I love riding but I am making up excuses not to go out. I am not sure if I should try out some other bikes before giving up? I know I need to make my own decision. But I would like feedback from anyone that has gone through the same thing and if you did trade your sporty in what did you trade it in for? Any suggestions?
