This article is great. I'm taking my course at Harley-Davidson soon as I've been wanting to learn to ride for years but am finally going for it this year.

Thank you for this site! I am just beginning the thought process and I have worried about all of these things. Already, I have courage thanks to these posts. Now...to keep it...

I will come back and post someday. After I dump it at least three times publicly and all the other things I read.

I love this site! I passed my MSF class with a perfect score (after dropping the bike practicing the quick stop) two weeks ago. Prior to that, I bought a Kawasaki Ninja 400 and couldn't wait to get on it! Needless to say, the Ninja was a totally different feel than the Kawasaki Eliminator I took the class on. After one awkward ride around my apartment complex, I finally got more comfortable with the Ninja's sensitive controls. I am so happy I went with the lighter Ninja over the Harley-Davidson Sportster 883 I was originally looking at. Plus, racing has always been in my blood so I use getting good enough to participate in a track day as motivation to get on my bike every evening, even if it is just riding through my parking lot. I love reading all the stories and informative articles...this is truly a wonderful site for the female rider!

I was a passenger for more than 3 years on my boyfriend's bike. Before I met him, the one and only time I was ever on a bike was when I was about 8 years old and went around the block on my Mom's friend's bike. Riding wasn't even on my radar. As a passenger, I was content. I enjoyed riding with my boyfriend, but never thought to learn myself until he suggested that I take the MSF course.

I took the course and surprised myself by passing the test. However, I still didn't purchase my bike for about a year and a half after I got my motorcycle license. I wanted to start small. I sat on a lot of bikes before I found the bike that was my perfect fit—a 2016 Suzuki TU250X in burnt orange. When I bought my bike I was very nervous. I practiced in a parking lot with my boyfriend to re-learn what I was taught at the MSF course. Gradually, I went from a parking lot to small neighborhood roads, to main roads, to highways. (Yes, my 250 can manage highways, but I don't travel them often or long.)

I've been riding for about 5 months now and have already put 3,000 miles on my bike. Now I ride more than my boyfriend does! There is something about being on your own bike. I love my bike, the ride, and the looks from people when they realize that the rider is a girl!
