Hi All, this is my first motorcycle forum and I really have enjoyed all the information I've been finding here. It's great to be able to read others experiences and ideas.
About me: I rode as a passenger with my Dad on and off from age 14. Being of very short stature, 4'9", I never believed I could ride my own bike. In 1996,
at age 42, my husband gave me a gift certificate to a motorcycle safety course. The rest, as they say, is history. I rode two Suzuki Savages (LS650thumper) for eleven years. "Earned" my bell with the first one. Finally upgraded to a v-twin Suzuki Boulevard M50 in 2007 and it's been another learning curve handling a heavier bike. I currently have 9K+ (happy) miles on my M50. My last notable trip with my husband (he rides a HD) was between SW Virginia and Sturgis SD, with a stop in Wyoming at Devil's Tower. Three weeks of bliss.
Okay, I've rambled enough. Later alligator.
