When the neighbor learned, she just spent quite a bit of time here in the neighborhood. It's pretty large and has a lot of curves and stop signs so there is good repetition. Plus you don't have to worry about going fast - speed limit is 35 throughout. A newer master-planned subdivision somewhere might be a good place to practice.

I'm kinda fond of 1485/1484, nice relaxing roads, easy turns, generally pretty clean save for the occasional meat waffled animal.

Thanks Pam

will be going out this afternoon also if you want to join
Riding only showed you what I was trying to tell you, and you did great after that I remember the first turn after that when I seen you move independently of the bike I was squealing your leaning, your leaning If I could have hi-5d ya I would have.
Just keep riding the roads we did today, they have the best curves for learners.

I had to retake my MSF about a year ago as i lost the card from taking it many years ago and wanted the insurance discount. I used my bike just had to sign a waiver that if i wrecked i would not hold them responsible for the damage to the bike.
