Oh boy! Barbara Holton's comment sounds like I wrote it. Barbara I would love to hear from you. I started learning to ride at 62. I brought a 883 and have fallen four times. Last time I broke my ankle. Thinking I had to give up my dream. Just in the last week I thought about getting a Harley Freewheeler?

I'm the person about whom this was written. I got back on my bike and rode. I just woke up a couple of days ago and thought, "I can do this now," I've read every answer on here many times, learning and digesting the lessons, and as I was tooling down the road this morning I thought, "Thanks, WRN!" because I know there are ladies out there who cared enough to read and respond. I hope this question and the responses will help others who need it, too.

I started learning to ride at age 61 on a Harley 883 Sportster. Well, the two of us were not a good match. Three times down; last one broke my ankle. I decided I needed to go three wheels. I was just too scared after that ankle incident and the arthritis in my knees is just too bad anyway. I bought a 2015 Harley Freewheeler and am having the time of my life! I know that's not what most people want to do but it was certainly the right choice for me.

Karen,
I sure can feel your fear. I went down after my bike went into a high speed wobble at about 60. I hated it, but got back on as soon as I got healed up. I hated it the next few times out. I left the new bike in the garage more than I rode it. I hated everyone who had "advice" for me. I was just not happy at all.

Finally I got back on when I felt like it and took a long trip, (about 700 miles) by myself and at my speed. That was the start. Then I started riding more often. I kept that bike four to five years, got a new one that I loved and kept for 26 years before getting the Harley that I have now. Bottom line, you have to be the one to decide. Just take your time and get healed up inside and outside. Then go riding. Praying for you. God bless.
