Got My License
I completed the MSP and on July 10th passed the skills test! The ladies of the Her Motorcycle Forum have been my inspiration, gave me encouragement and courage. Honestly, this forum has been a big part of my success. Learning to ride did not come easy to me and even as I completed each part of the skills test, I was pretty sure I had failed. I blew the reverse U-turns and I too believed I had blown the S curve and cornering. When my entire class including me learned we had all passed, I was shocked. One of my instructors told me that in all the years that he instructed he had never seen anyone screw up the S curve and cornering exercise as badly as I did and still manage to execute a perfect S turn and cornering lol. The lessons I learned consist of never losing fate in yourself, don't over think (we women tend to do it easily), relax your posture, smile or force a smile and enjoy the ride! You will be surprised at what you can accomplish. Tomorrow I venture out with my new learned skills in my development to start and as I progress look forward to my first real ride with my husband. My husband and my college age kids are so proud of me (the kids didn't think their weenie mom could do it) and I feel amazing having done something I never imagined I could or would do at age 54.
For those going through this journey now, please write your concerns. I am sure I and/or others out there have experienced what you are feeling now. Use this forum for strength, I did and it got me through the tough parts. Ride on!
