Hello MH!


Hello MH!
I've never been on a bike before the safety course at Awesome Cycles ~ a month ago. Took the class with the boyfriend for fun and BAM - now a pride owner to a Yamaha 250. Look forward to joining the MH's fam!

Boyfriend has a '08 Kawasaki ZX-10R and I have a '13 Yamaha V Star 250. Yeah, I know. Big difference in power but I'm loving mine.

Hello Nancerulez!!! Welcome to MH. I have been riding for 5 years now and thanks to these 2 guys here I manage to keep my self ahead of the game... Don't be cheap with your gear! I have a small leather jacket that I don't wear (but if you're busty, probably won't fit), and size 8 moto boots if you need it. $50 for both, they are in good condition. PM me if you want them, I'll take the pictures when I get home later if so.

Let us know when you are ready for track, Ridesmart offers 50% off and free leather rentals and boots (hold your driver's license as deposit) for first timers.

Other than that, a friend of ours has the following advice (on a different thread):

Use your front brake mainly and use the rear brake lightly. Look where want to go, not where you are going. Always look far ahead and when in traffic behind a car, ride to one side of then lane or the other so you look around the car and see whats going on up ahead. Take your advice from riders who have been riding a long time, the older/wiser the better.

You will crash eventually so get geared up. And remember this, there two kinds of motorcycle riders. Those who have crashed and those that are going to.

There are old riders and there are bold riders but there are no old and bold riders.

Hello! Thanks for the offer! Before I dare to even think of venturing out to the big roads, I went and bought myself a moto jacket with additional front and back plates. Got me some matching knee guards that I wear over my jeans and a full face helmet. I have some high tops shoes that I bought for the MSF course and of course, wear them for every ride along with gloves. Safety first, fun second. Not sure if I need anything else but reading through posts and seeing pictures of crashes sure does drive home the importance of safety gear.

That makes me feel better! I know I lucked out when I first started (helmet, gloves only). I look back now and cringe, and try to spread the word as much as possible. Glad you are ahead of the game!
