Hello, I have been lurking for a few weeks and decided I would get rid of the message across the top of my screen that keeps scolding me for not having introduced myself....soo.....

I have been riding cruisers for the past 7 years. Just went tonight and picked up my first sport bike. So now I get to learn a new riding style

I was first drawn to wanting to learn how to ride because several of my friends had bikes and being the type of person I am, I just had to be able to do what they did, so I found the local MSF course, signed up, and with in two weeks I was sitting on a motorcycle for the very first time. Finished the class, got my license, and then began the hunt for a bike. Everyone asked why didn't I just have a friend teach me....first off, what would I have learned on? one of their bikes of course, and I think of bikes like toothbrushes...do you really want to "lend" your toothbrush to someone? However on a more serious note, I knew that no matter how well intentioned my friends might be, their teaching would not be comprable to a professional trainer, who is there to make sure I knew how to ride safe, and not just ride.

I am looking forward to becoming more familar with my new addition (just have to keep my husband off it) and hope that by the end of the summer, I will feel confident enough to at least attend one track day this year.

Thanks for all the information and experience you guys bring to the boards every day. It is great to see such a helpful and knowlegeable community.

welcome to MH man.

i have been riding since i was like 11 or so, on dirtbikes, i road my first street bikes at like 19 i think
didnt take the MSF course until the new laws were passed that were a lot stricter on having a M on the license. road with out my license for many years.
and to be honest the class was boring, i cant remember now what it was but i did leave after it was done having learned at least one or two things.

twist of the wrist, there are two volumes by keith code, i think most people will agree that it is a great DVD/book to read even if you have been riding for years.
TBH i sold my bike to an old friend from highschool before moving to philippines.
i made him read the book i gave him and tell me at least three things he learned, haha.

ride safe
