I love all of the positive encouragement expressed. My mom never wanted me to learn how to ride, and after she passed away it was a goal that gave me peace and definitely a sense of joy. The sense of freedom and zen I get while riding is immeasurable indeed. After being run off of the road on my Yamaha V Star 250, I was so determined to master the art of motorcycling, I treated myself to the most lovely bike; a 2005 Harley-Davidson Sportster 883 C.

I am manifesting a dream that has been a long time coming!

1. Always stop with your front wheel straight. Several times I dropped my bike because I did not do this.
2. Ride your own ride. If they are going too fast for you, slow down.
3. Come up with a great story about how someone got killed walking across the street in their safe neighborhood (real or made up) or just say, "thank you for sharing" and turn away.
4. Join a woman's riding group. We get it. We've been there. We care. We will support you.
5. There are lots of great women's motorcycles on eBay cheaper.
6. Oh, by the way, I dropped my bike five times in training class.
6. Cycle Gear is your friend!

I just got my Sportster 883 in June. I've dropped her five times but only one time out of my driveway and that was in an empty church parking lot. Thank God for saddle bags! I was able to pick her up and carry on. I named her Bella Vento, which is Italian for beautiful wind. Helmet tip to all you sistas out there! This is so flipping fun!

I started on a Harley-Davidson 883 Sportster earlier this year, with hubs teaching me. I immediately dropped it. A few weeks later, after some practice, I crashed it; nothing too dramatic, but ouch! Then I wised up and took a class. It made such a difference to learn from someone who knew how to teach a beginner. I just got a Heritage Softail and I love it, but it feels a lot bigger than that Sportster, so I'm still practicing tight turns before I start riding to work.

Anyone else name their bike? This is Priscilla.
