4000 plus miles so far
me and my sportster
Been a while since I posted here. Just wanted to update you ladies.
I started out on a Rebel in 2011, moved up to my Sportster in Feb of last year. The Hubby bought me Red Harley for Valentines Day :) I Have about 4000 miles under my belt since then and have learned how to ride in a group and by myself. I have had some minor incidents of stupidity or forgetfulness. Using my front brake has caused me to drop my bike 2 times - once in my driveway and once in some gravel on the side of a highway. I managed to not get hurt and realized quickly that the Front brake over usage is BAD for me.
I have gained a lot of confidence and LOVE riding with my hubby and my 18 yo son who both have Harleys. Hubby and I took a week off of work and rode about 100 miles a day around here in Pa and WV and some parts of OH.
I always wondered when I would reach the point of being able to ENJOY the ride and not feel like I was working really hard, I don't know when it happened - but it has. I can feel the freedom of riding - I can feel my connection to God and I can feel my Father in Heaven smiling down on me from His Harley in the sky. I see my son riding in front of me and I have such a strong sense of pride and love for the man he is becoming.
I'm so grateful my husband and I can bond on another level when we ride together, I love it. Words can't truly express what this experience has meant to me.
If you are new to this ladies- stick with it. The results are worth it!!
