I just bought my first bike and took the motorcycle safety class about a month ago. I bought an older Honda CX500 Custom (I got a great deal) until I find my dream bike. I made my first road trip on Saturday with a group of friends. The ride was about 2 hours down and 2 hours back. I loved it! I have been on the back of bikes for years, but there is nothing like riding your own bike! I am looking for more road time, but I would rather ride with experienced riders. I live in the Baltimore area. I have friends that ride, but they can't spend all their time with me. lol

Anyone want to help me explore the open road?

If I ride with more than one person they always put me in the middle. Latley I have been only riding with one friend. Is it better to be in the front or in the back when I am riding with just one other person? I am getting very comfortable riding, and I am getting plenty of riding time.

hi sportian

you should always ride with two other people one in front one in back. you watch the person in front and the other person watches you!

Sportian...

Good luck and welcome. Glad to see you took a rider safety course, everyone should, including those who like to hold on from the back. Stay safe and keep the rubber side down.

Thanks. I love riding. I am just not experienced enough to ride alone. It is more fun riding with someone else anyway.
