So finally, I have a picture to share with you. So, if you have read a past post you might remember that I mentioned that I was going to take a motorcycle endorsement weekend class, but since I had never ridden any type of motorcycle I told Kevin that I needed to practice on something before I took the class.
Well one of our friends had a brother that had an old dirt bike sitting in his garage, the most important thing being that it had a clutch. Our friends brought the bike up to us here and I did some practicing on that for a bit and then Kevin was browsing online and ran across a "real" motorcycle for sale.
So... right after my last chemo while I was comatose in bed, he gathered up the boys and drove over the mountains to the other side of the state and got me this.
So this bike is really a great starter bike. It is small and isn't really freeway worthy, but it will put put around town. I've been practicing on this around the neighborhood and yes, I think 25 mph is fast (lol). I did get on a "real" street tonight and did get it up to 35 mph.
I haven't crashed or dropped it yet so I'm doing good. The whole hand and feet coordination is coming along but I do feel like I need to practice every night. The class isn't this weekend, but next and I don't want to fail it... but I'll let you know the results once they are in.
If you had asked me last year if I would be doing this I would have said no... I guess you could say my outlook on life has changed a little bit.
Thanks for visiting.
Until next time.
