Advice ladies...go with your adventure side or listen to the masses?
I recently decided I wanted to get a bike. A friend has an immaculate 1985 Honda Shadow 700 and it got me thinking that it would be a cheap way for me to get in to it. My husband knows better than to tell me no, even though I know it makes him nervous. But he also has an interest so that was my "in".
Some history is that I grew up riding dirt bikes, BUT I lost my father to a motorcycle accident (street) when I was 17. Yes, major bummer that has affected my whole life. Why I want to do this is not yet explained. And I am going to take a lot of crap from family and friends for wanting to do this. I already am.
Husband says ok, just take the MSF course which is fine.
First question is, do I cave to the pressure I will receive from the immediate family? And secondly, is the bike too much for a first bike? I am hoping that previous experience at least helps me a bit, although the street thing will be all new.
New to the site, glad I found it and am looking forward to your advice!
