(Petersburg, IL )
I just wanted to say "thank you" for having this website and especially the forum!! For a new rider like myself, it's SO encouraging to read your posts and to see the things Im fearing and questioning and struggle with are all part of the process!!!
My boyfriend, who's been wonderful and very patient has almost 20 years of riding experience, so the one thing he's not able to understand is the "fear". The wanting to succeed at this, yet still having fear about it... Tonight is going to be a 20 minute highway trip to our favorite spot for "Taco Night"... I've ridden everyday since I got the bike last Saturday and each time I try to progress a little more. But finding this site has been SO incredibly helpful for me, so thank you!!!
