Hi everyone! New to motohouston, I saw a lot of you at Cycle Bash this Sunday!

Wondering if there are any women riders out there that would like to link up, I need some tips on cornering.

"The Morganator"'s wife, Karen goes on rides with us. I'm sure she'd be willing to ride and help you out.

welcome to the forum

To go right push on the right bar, to go left push the on left bar. This called counter steering and you learned how to do it when you learned how to ride a bicycle. 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.

Hi! I ride a lot with Keith (Morganator) and definitely recommend his rides for one on one. I live in Humble and always down to ride!

Welcome Cali

There is some good advice on this forum, but from my experience it's better to talk to people at rides and meets. Some of the guys online are a lot bigger online than they are in person. So just take their words with a grain of salt and don't be scared give them mess as well.

I really wish people would stop saying this. Adopting this mentality set you up for failure. Yes, riding is a high risk activity and you should always wear your gear, but it's not true that everyone who rides IS GOING TO CRASH.
Ride within your limits, stay focused, stay smooth, be observant of what's going on around you and anticipate what cars and other riders might do, make wise decisions and NEVER STOP RIDING. Never give up on a turn -- just kiss your mirror and push on the freaking bar!


Welcome to MH, Cali! Always good to see other female riders. What part of town are you in?

Dress for the slide and not for the ride... happens... Not in a long shot I would think that I would get run over by the bike behind me...4 surgeries 7 months recovering and counting but 4 of the 7 was in a wheelchair.
If wasn't for all the gear I was wearing I could have being paralyzed.
Gear the up!!! that's all I was saying...

I didn't say to be bold - I said to be careful.
I understand that things happen beyond our control sometimes and agree that we should dress for the slide not the ride. I did say "you should always wear your gear...it's a high risk activity". I know that it just takes a split second for things to go horribly wrong and many riders do go down. BUT rather than thinking "I'm going to crash" it's much more productive to visualize a positive game-plan for yourself.

Thank you Princess! I wear full gear even when I ride to the corner store, keeping a positive mindset always but also always prepared.

I'm in Katy, what about you?

Sounds like you're doing it right.

I'm in Jersey Village. If you feel like heading north, I can show you the forest sometime. It's a nice ride.

Lindz would also be a great person for you to ride with. She knows what she's doing.

And there's a chick on here who goes by Oakley who I think lives in Katy. I've never ridden with her but you might try to connect with her if you just want to tool around the west side with someone.

If I organized it, everyone would have to wear tutus and tiaras.
