Experienced Rider(s) in Albuquerque, NM?
Hi, there, ladies and the occasional gentleman,
I just finished the MSF beginner's course yesterday and successfully passed the written and riding tests. I am ready to buy my first motorcycle (used) to start practicing and eventually riding in traffic. I read the information on this website about getting an experienced rider to accompany me to look at and test ride bikes, but unfortunately, I just moved to Albuquerque from California and don't know anybody who is an experienced rider. I met several riders in my MSF course, but didn't exchange contact information. I don't have the money to pay for a consultant or mechanic to come with me to check out a bike I found on Craig's List so I decided to post on here to see if there was anybody around who would derive joy from helping out a novice bike rider pro bono? It would be nice to find a group of women who can further motivate me to ride. I am the greenest of all bike riders (dropped my bike in class and was the only person who sat on a motorcycle for the first time in class). If there is anybody out there with advice on what to look for when purchasing a used bike or if anybody wants to join me for a day of motorcycle hunting in Albuquerque, please respond. Thanks in advance!
