Dear WRN,

At 52, I tried taking the motorcycle training class last year, failed the riding portion, and dropped the bike. At the same time, my father was in a rehabilitation center due to a fall. In pretty sure it was my guilt contributing to my failure. That was a year ago. I'm ready to try again, but don't want to fail again. I have a Yamaha 250. Any suggestions on how to find a mentor? 

Thank you,
Fort Walton Beach, Florida
