Passed the Class!
This is Bridgett, I have enjoyed this site so much and have really enjoyed the feedback. I wanted to discuss my new item.
I took the Motorcycle Safety Class this weekend, and I passed! Yeah! But problem is, I really thought I was going to fail. I think I was the greenest in the class, and I felt a bit intimidated. The instructors were great, I learned a lot. But I felt like I am not a "natural born rider". I felt very incompetent. I felt that if I was on the road, I would be killed very quickly! I have every intention on practicing like crazy. But want to hear back from others about their experiences in class when they first learned to ride. Should I be concerned? Do I keep on? I don't know what I should have been capable of doing after only 2 days of riding, seemed others were smoother.
Also, I originally wanted a Sportster or a VTX1300 because I didn't want a bike that I would quickly grow out of, but now I think I want an even smaller bike! Will I improve quickly if I practice?
Specifically, I felt very uncoordinated with "Braking,and U Turns". The emergency braking was hard, I would forget to downshift, and forget the foot break...aaaaah Thanks again for all feedback!
