I'm new at this, will i get it?
I live in austin texas and wanted a bike because they're more economical. I have never driven anything like a bike, no dirt bike 4 wheeler or anything standard. I took one of those motorcycle safety weekend classes to get your license, passed and bought myself a small 250cc honda rebel. I got my cousin to drive it home (it was far away and I didn't feel comfortable) In the class we drove around in a parking lot never going over 20mph if that. I've driven probably 11 hours tops on a bike. The gear shifting is hard for me, i stall out sometimes and when i drove it around my apartment complex I drove it into a wall! (every things okay). My cousin has a bike and we drove around the parking lot at home, then when we decided to go on the street I was scared about going over 20mph! Is this normal? with practice in the parking lot and all that will I get better? I hope I didn't waste all this money! just let me know if it took any of you some time to get used to your bike before you'd drive on the road with traffic, and how long it took you. My cousin and his friends are big biker dudes who all grew up on bikes and they make fun of me for my little bike and being scared. I hope there are more girls like me!
