Rode to town by myself (44 mi. trip) !
by Joetta Nelms
The Saturday before last I rode 44 mi to the city to get my sheriff's inspection on my new Sportster I bought out of state. I didn't have any problems except once I revved up the throttlwhile trying to put on my right blinker. I have since bought "blinker extenders", found them online. If anyone else has trouble reaching blinker buttons I punched in "can't reach blinkers on motorcycle" and it popped up. They're plastic and just stick to the blinker button. Were only 10.00. They're un-noticeable really, and a BIG help. I feel much more readily able to put on blinkers now. Any who, the trip went great,was mostly back-roads (had to watch for deer), only got up to 50 on the highway (small highway), had cars passing me because they could NOT be behind a woman on a motorcycle. Some of them rode too close behind and I blinked my brakes at them (like my husband recommended) and they either passed of backed off. I was proud of myself and feel like it was an ice-breaker going on this little trip to town!!!
