New from Virginia!

Hey ya'll I'm a complete newbie at all this! My husband suprised me the other day and got me my first motorcycle! Last year he got himself a new Stryker, so this year it was my turn for a new toy so he got me a V Star! I'm looking forward to getting out and riding!

Thanks for the welcome! Yea I signed up for a course the weekend of the 8th! I'm used to being a backseat rider, so driving my own will definitely be a new experience!

Yay! More women riding! Welcome, welcome. The course is definitely worth it to build some confidence and get the basic skills but don't forget that most of your learning will be on the road... kind of like when you "learnt" to drive a car with your mom...

Welcome! I'm new too so I have no advice for you but am excited to see more women riders!

On a motorcycle, suddenly you comprehend the wrongness of speed..."We are running way too fast!" your primal brain screams. "How did this even happen?! ARE WE FALLING?"
And then your rational brain glances in the rear view mirror and says "Speed up, man, this is a school zone: You have to do at least 20 mph."

Which type of V-Star are you now the proud owner of? Got any pictures of your ride?

Ride safe and don't go faster than your gardian angel can fly.
