Honda VLX Deluxe 2006

a few of my fav things
My First Bike...sort of!
A few months ago, I decided to become a rider. My kids say its my mid-life crisis...hmmm, possibly!
I say its cuz I have lived through 2 bouts of cancer in 4 years and I plan to live til I die.What ever the case may be, I wanted a bike.
Being practical, I first bought a 150cc scooter....yeah well that was fun, but not NEAR enough power. 2 months later ( and just this week) I am the proud owner of a beautiful lil girl . She is a Honda VLX Delux 2006 and I call her Honey.
I must admit, I dropped her yesterday in the parking lot I was practicing in. For a while I was having 2nd thoughts about my decision. Luckily, my friend and neighbor was there and she told me to just let it go. Her idea was " well, now that is behind you, you never have to worry what it'd be like to drop it!"
Guess she is right...I will continue to practice and use all of the techniques that I learned in ride school. I hope that the nervousness wears off soon.
Until later, Ride safely Sisters!
