Default Maiden Voyage down!




Did my maiden voyage on my Street Bob last night? Was so freaked when I started that I had cotton mouth, and had to keep breathing g in and out slowly? Started with loops, to weaving between trees in the middle of the lot. Woke up with a link in my neck, not sure if it's from sleeping wrong, mainly working g on left turns, or the death grip on the handle bars.😂😂 Looking forward to the next practice session. 😁🏍

I don't know how to thank on each comment.

I woke up the next morning with a link in my neck from all my left turning LOL It"ll be a couple days before I get back on. 😋

Just keep going at your own pace. You'll be ready to move out of the parking lot in no time. For your first time on the street, may I suggest early Saturday or Sunday morning? Its quiet, no one's around and you can really enjoy riding.

Thanks TJ! That's a great idea! I'm an Aries, so I've have to curb my mental spontaneity to just wanna jump out after one practice. LOL I know I'm not ready though, but it'll be soon.

Congrats . . . I remember those feelings quite well . . . scary but so exhilarating at the same time! You go girl - you got this. Keep us posted on your progress and ask questions when you have some. We have all been where you are at one point.
