I'm having such a blast riding Michael's Harley! I've been downtown, on the back roads and even the highway now. I ride every chance I get. Poor Michael, I'm sure he's probably regretting ever having encouraged me to start riding his bike because he's at home with the kids while I'm riding. Practice makes perfect! The hardest part of riding is when I know people are looking at me. As a lady rider, people just stare! It makes me nervous. I'm hoping I'll start to get used to it. I've made some mistakes, but nothing major. The worst one was when I dropped it (I was stopped) at a gas station in front of God and everybody. It was totally my fault, because I had put myself in a position where I had to back up, then make a tight turn from a stop with traffic coming in and out from all over the place. Thank God Michael's bike didn't get a scratch! I had to have some strong guys pick it up for me. They asked me if I was OK and all I could think to say was, "I'm fine! I'm just worried about my husband's bike!" I was pretty shook up, so I drove home. Michael told me to get back on and go for a 50 mile ride to shake it off. It was kind of one of those concepts of, "if you get bucked off, get back on". He was right, after riding 50 miles of back roads, I had my confidence back and I was doing fine. Mom and I want to plan a ride soon. I can't wait! I really do think that just like her, I was "Born to Ride"!
