Gaining confidence. How?
I'm so happy to have found a women's forum. I'm an "older" woman. Ok, I'm 56 yrs.old I took the MSF course last year. Loved it, passed it. This spring husband got me a Honda Rebel, just like the one I learned on. I'm 5'1 about 100lbs. so the little Reb fits me perfect.
I'm so comfortable at 35mph. Stopping, starting, shifting, cornering, all feel good. But,,, nudging that throttle up to 40+ and I feel the nerves kick in! Is it just a matter of miles and time on the bike? The husband on his Harley has been shepherding me around on the back roads, but the poor guy is just puttering while I feel like I'm zooming along.
Advice, words of wisdom?
