It's going great. I am now comfortable enough to ride around my neighborhood at speeds of less than 45MPH. On the straight away I did try to get up to maybe 50-55 but it felt like I was going so fast so I slow down.

I've already encountered:

Kids running across the street without looking
Random basketball rolling out from no where.
Taking the curve a little too fast

I'm pretty trying to get as much practice at stop and go as much as I can. This is the hardest for me. I feel like I take too long at a stop sign before I take off again.

I'm going to try the feeder next. I've pretty much mapped out a two mile radius around my house so I can take small side streets back into my subdivision.


Hi Ormand. I </3 you.

I can't do that to him! He's been a good boy.

He volunteered to drive behind me when I told him I want to venture out on the feeder early Sunday mornings. I've only been riding around the neighborhood and the fastest I've gone is 50mph down the main road (posted speed limit is 45mph). I want to get the feel of riding at near freeway speeds.

Would it be a good idea ask a friend for me to piggy back him riding at freeway speeds so I can get the feel of riding that fast, etc?

I'm scared shitless!

I say just keep going at your pace, freeways around there are crazy


Backroads are where it's at in my opinion. I started around the block then started hitting some of the bigger streets around here. Didn't get on a highway until a couple of days of just cruising around and when I did it was like 10 or so in the morning and then again at around 2pm in the afternoon so everyone was at work or school. Very light traffic during that time, down here at least.

Ugh no. Well at least in my opnion. I am comfortable with highway speeds and have been riding for a few months but a couple of weeks ago I had to ride monkey (on the back) of my friends bike, it has a low big seat too, and I thought it was awfal. I hated not being in control and it freaked me out. I was flinching the whole time.
