Thats quite a story Shorts. I'm surprised that you can remember so much of it. I'm glad that you have come back so far. And now you are riding. It's only going to get WAY better from here on out....

Thanks for sharing that Shorts, I imagine it wasen't easy to relive that. You're a fighter woman! You recovered from that accident as best you could and your living your life as best you can. I admire you for not letting your hand stand in the way of riding a motorcycle.

hahahaha, I love the end of the cone weaving video.

"You hit two cones. Those could have been people! Those could have been guests at our wedding!!!"

"They were cones!!"

Is it sad I know that is from Wedding Singer :oops:

I would like to offer everyone a challenge.
The next time you go out for parking lot practice and slow speed manuevers, get yourself in 2nd gear, then try each exercise using your right hand only to steer the bike. Keep your left hand glued to your leg, don't even bring it up to balance. I'm interested in your observations and take on how it feels.
Haha. I do it most days but I have crashed most unceremoniously more times than I care to mention. :oops:

Your blog has been an amazing read so far and I continue to be humbled by your commitment to riding. Keep it up!

Shorts, I can sort of see where you're coming from. I recall a post I made in response to one of your threads. I was riding in the mountains and the temps dropped and my hands were freezing as I had only summer gloves. I started riding with only my right hand for throttle while keeping my other hand near the engine for warmth. All the maneuvers were much more difficult and I had to really pay attention to how my body was placed and needed a bit more "body english" to get the turns. Most of the turns were in 2nd or 3rd so it was a bit easier than doing things at lower speeds.

Simply awesome Shorts! You Texan women are a force to be reckoned with! The riding looks great so far and here's to cheering you on from this side of the ocean. Good luck with it all and it speaks volumes that you've come this far already. Don't yame now!
Ya right, :wink: there are only 2 kinds of bikes: It's a Ninja... look that one's a Harley... oh there's a Ninja... Harley...Ninja...
