New rider

Hello everyone. I'm new to riding at 36 years old. I kind of always wanted to ride a motorcycle, but I always had something else I wanted to spend money on more, until recently when I decided I really wanted to learn how to ride. I picked up a 2001 SV650, which I had to have a friend ride back to my house from where I bought it, since I don't know how to ride. I've planned to go to the BRC at Awesome Cycles the second week of December, and after that I can get my license and start riding. I live in North Houston just north of Beltway 8 east of 249. I'm looking forward to getting familiar with the bike over the next couple of years and learning all I can before I spend more on a newer one.

From a good friend racer, track instructor.

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.
