Re: Newbie

Welcome! New rider, myself. I've put some good miles on in the last few months and have finally hit my stride. Hope you're enjoying your new bike!

Re: Tip Top Tips

I wonder sometimes if I do this because I'm fairly "new" to riding my own bike or if it's simply because I'm a woman or because I'm an older (more experienced) driver of anything on a road. I know I do this in my car as well. I never go in to a turn I can't "see my way out of" without gearing down o...

Re: New, looking for 1st bike, how are these

The first bike I ever rode was a Honda 600 CBR F3, and it was light but had a LOT of power for a newbie. If you like sport bikes, as a first one...I wouldn't go over a 600 to start out...also wouldn't buy anything too old unless you like working on bikes.

Re: Hello, I'm Cheri. I'm a novice rider.

Thanks for all of the support, everyone! I just took my first overnight ride with my hubby, some of our friends (who can be some of the pickiest riders around), and about 100 other bikes for a Riders For Heroes Veteran's Charity Ride. We'd been planning it for months, and I was really nervous about ...

Re: Hello, I'm Cheri. I'm a novice rider.

Rubiadiabla Thanks for all of that info! I actually made one of the best decisions in reaching out to the Chrome Divas chapter here. One of the ladies is also a member of our local HOG chapter, and I'd met her before on some rides my husband and I had done. She has become my "mentor". She's been rid...

Re: Hello, I'm Cheri. I'm a novice rider.

Actually found a great group of ladies in the Chrome Divas. I rode my bike an hour to meet up with them at their all female ride this past weekend. I wasn't planning to ride with them. Didn't think I was good enough yet. They told me that if I could ride as far as I had to get there, I'd be fine. Th...

Hello...

New to the site. Novice rider (see my intro on Beginning Riders board). Just looking "community" support in my riding endeavor. Own a 2017 883 Iron. DH rides a 2014 Street Glide that I ride passenger on quite often. Father owns a 2016 Road King, so you can probably tell we're an "HD" family. LOL All...

Re: Hello, I'm Cheri. I'm a novice rider.

Thanks, pchast. LOL Nothing worth learning ever comes easy. I took her back out last night. Had my son drive his car down to the boat ramp parking lot to be there just in case I did something dumb and needed help picking the bike back up. Thankfully, I did just fine. Rode it down there on my own..no...

Hello, I'm Cheri. I'm a novice rider.

So, I'll introduce myself. I'm Cheri. I'm a 44 year old female Veteran. I'm an avid motorcyclist but have been a passenger for several years. My DH has ridden most of his life as has my Dad. Both are HD owners. DH has a 2014 Street Glide. Dad has a 2016 Road King (If I recall). I rode (very little) ...
