Newbie from Florida

Postby Jo Ann » Mon Dec 05, 2016 10:04 am

Hi, I am new to riding(well new to riding my own motorcycle). I am a 45 year old wife and mother of two. My sons are now adults with lives of their own. So, now it is my turn to enjoy the feeling of freedom that I kept hearing about. I decided to leap from the passenger seat, right onto the driver seat. I bought a used bike, a 2006 Honda VTX 1300r, was rather difficult to find a motorcycle for my height. Yesterday was my first ride away from my neighborhood area. It was amazing!
Thank you all for your stories, many of them helped me over my fear of becoming a woman rider.

Hi Jo ann, where in Florida are you? I'm in the panhandle north of Destin.
