Riding On the Highway
(Louisville, Ky )
This July will be a year since I have taken the motorcycle class. Best class ever. My problem is the highway(interstate) riding. I am very much afraid of it. It really is not the speed, because my husband and I have ridden out to the lake with speed of 55-60. I have this brick wall that I have built and I can not break it down.
I am afraid of the pavement of all things. It is hard to explain, but I will try. I think they are called the water lines, so when it rains, the water runs off of the street. I am fearful of that. I am afraid that the bike will swerve a lot and I will panic and down I go. Short of just doing it, has anyone else had this fear?? If so, please let me know how you overcome it. My husband and many of friends, also the salesman in the bike stores tell me that you do not feel them. That the bike rides right over them. I am so very tired of the stop and go traffic in town. I want to try the highway, but my fears are stopping me. I am so afraid of it, that I have thought about selling my bike; but I love to ride. Any suggestions??
I will be glad to hear what you think.
