Please keep sharing these stories. I’m passing 60 years old. I am a disabled veteran and have Parkinson’s but I try to do it all...key word, “ try”. My husband has a few Harleys and he is also a disabled vet. I don’t want to ride with him. I want to ride myself. I know that whatever bike I choose, modifications will be needed in order for me to ride. First, I need to learn. I enjoy the encouragement I feel after reading other women’s experiences.

I love reading WRN's stories. I am taking a rider's class in March and am so nervous ... but ready. I, too, have been riding on the back seat for a long time. I am looking forward to the day when I can jump on my own bike.

Keep the stories coming...I need all the encouragement I can get!

I had a goal to have my first bike before I turned 50. I did it and I've got five years to go! I'd only ever ridden scooters so it was something I wanted to do right. Helmet, gloves, jacket, boots, class, bike.

My daughter was married in September 2018, 3 or 4 weeks after I purchased my beautiful Kawasaki Vulcan 650s. I can flat-foot it and she (my beautiful Vulcan) fits like a glove! I puttered around the neighborhood waiting for my MSF class to not be cancelled due to weather. I practiced slow maneuvers, stops, shifting, starting from a stop, etc. I never went faster than 20 mph and stayed in the neighborhood. It took a bit as Colorado weather can be persnickety.

Finally, the first weekend of October I took the MSF BasicRider class. I passed and got my endorsement. I was ecstatic! It still took a few weeks to get out of the neighborhood to try the low traffic roads in my tiny town. I have gotten out on the Vulcan multiple times every month (only a few times this February as it has been a bit cold). This month I finally got the confidence to head out of town and conquered that nervousness.

Both my husband and his brother admit that my Vulcan is sheer fun and I couldn't agree more. Yes, I said my hubby is right! We've gotten saddlebags and are ready to install. I am super stoked to have more adventures to come. I am glad that I didn't wait until I was 50!
