I just passed my MSF course last weekend. It was my second attempt, but I’m so glad I did. My first time I was overwhelmed by my fears of the motorcycle, but I knew I wasn’t ready to stop trying. So my husband found me a motorcycle, a Kawasaki Vulcan 500, and we started training in the local school parking lot. I still have a lot of practice before I start racking up miles, but on my first ride as a licensed driver we did about 70 miles of back roads and it was so exciting! I actually did a happy dance at one of our stops! I’m 46, I have 2 kids and 4 grandchildren, and I’ve wanted to learn to ride for a really long time, so glad I finally did it! It’s never too late to go for our dreams!

I rode my little V Star 250 for 10,043 miles in just over three years, before finally gaining enough confidence to get a bigger bike. I researched "next" bikes for six months, then surprisingly, turned to used when one became available not too far away (60 miles).

It's been seven months of mostly commuting, but I am very happy with my 2004 Yamaha V Star 1100. Recently I took a trip to Colorado and rented an Indian Scout and visited a Harley-Davidson dealership and sat on a Dyna Low Rider and Street 750. Test rides next!

Until four years ago at age 52, I never thought I'd get near a motorcycle. Now I'm plotting vacations around riding! Even my workdays are better when I can ride to the office.

I didn't begin my adventure until I was 60 but I have never looked back since. I rode a Honda Rebel 250 for three months and then bought my Harley SuperLow. Fourteen thousand miles afterwards (now 62), I'm still loving it and riding every chance I get!

My story is a little different. My husband passed away when I was 44. We had been married 26 years. With two grown children I decided I wanted to ride a motorcycle. Like you I took the test, bought a 650, had it brought to my house, memorized the owners manual and practiced in my driveway for a week. After that I went a little further every day. That was 13 years ago. I am now on my fourth bike, a 2017 Street Glide Special, and have ridden more than 65,000 miles. I hope to ride 35,000 more on this one. I met my current husband and many good friends while riding. Riding got me through some times and is my stress reliever. If you have the desire, do it. Life is short.
