Hello from Scottsdale, Az!

Postby AzLadyBiker » Tue Sep 13, 2016 4:48 pm

Hello! I started riding at age 52 on Aug. 8, 2015. I took the 2 day rider course and practiced on a 2004 Honda Shadow VTX 600. I spent 2 weeks and about 400 miles in parking lots before then stepping up to side streets, and then on up to confident riding.

I outgrew the Honda after about 3,400 miles and upgraded to a 2016 Harley Heritage Softail Classic in late Oct. 2015.
I've now put over 8,000 miles on the Harley and love my new passion. I've ridden all over most of central and Northern Arizona and I did a solo ride to the Grand Canyon North Rim where I camped 4 nights with a day trip to Zion National Park in Utah.

I've made some great new friends in the process and found a whole new freedom and confidence.
I enjoy reading articles and discussions on this site.

Welcome! Very nice ride you have there! I'm a brand new rider just beginning to take to the road. So far I love the feeling of riding and can't wait until I have enough experience and seat time to venture beyond my own road.

Hi Leslie. I never noticed that about my face shield in that photo. :D It is actually a "mirror" face shield so it was picking up the reflection. This was taken moments after I rode out of the dealership and across the street to a practice track to practice with the bigger bike for a bit before hitting the streets. I named my bike "Stella" and have made a few cosmetic and lighting enhancements. I had the sissy bar converted to detachable so I mostly ride with it off. And I am having a driver backrest made so I can take the passenger pillon off to show off the fender paint more.
