Okay. I'm a new biker at 55. I've thought about doing this for years but was too busy being a husband, father, and teacher to invest the cash into my secret dream. Life changes and now I'm all alone. So what the hell?
I bought my first bike after a year of shopping and before I had a license. I took it out right away and overthought everything. Fortunatley, one of my graduates teaches the motorcycle safety course in muy area. So, I signed up. It is the best course I ever took. Now, I'm comfortably riding my bike. I have a lot to learn yet but I got the basic skills I need to take it to the next level.
I think all new riders should sign up. They might even get a break on their insurance!
These classes are encouraged by many many folks .. and insurance companies even prefer some of us long time riders take a refresher course as well .. Good luck on your new journey, maybe seeing ya around ?
