hello guys I really have no idea how to make an entry but here it is name is Sam Edward and age is 21 and I ride a BMW F650 and I love to go on long jonuneys where no one has ever gone I just want to break my own limit.
so here it goes. Got the bike up and going and well the boyfriend is no longer in the picture (left way before the bike was ready). So took it out on the side roads -- nervous as can be (found out that isn't cool on handleing the bike so had to keep ... moreso here it goes. Got the bike up and going and well the boyfriend is no longer in the picture (left way before the bike was ready). So took it out on the side roads -- nervous as can be (found out that isn't cool on handleing the bike so had to keep telling myself to relax -- helped until got into s bit of traffic). A person I met took me to the school to practice and was totally different and more relaxed. Problem is I don't have that opportunity very often so it's on my own basically. YES I will be doing the riders safety course WHEN I can afford to but right now out of the picture.
So how did you learn on your own and not be so scared of everything?!?! less

I just started riding my own bike in the summer of '13. I have rode on the back of boyfriends Harley and Ninja for a few years. I am still in the "fearful" stage, but I am determined to be a comfortable rider. I love riding, even though I have laid my bike down. I am a persistant b....
To summarize "me";
I buy most of my clothes at GoodWill.
I eat plants grown from my garden rather than "Olive Garden".
I hang my wet clothes in the living room to dry. Yes the dryer works. :)
I save tin cans and plastic containers. I have yet needed to buy any storage containers from Walmart.
I only have two ingredients under my sink, baking soda and vinegar. What else do you need?!
My dog thinks he is a cat.
I compliment my bike more than my boyfriend.
I like to sit in the woods.
I eat pickles when I my tummy hurts. (works every time)
I like rock n roll and classical music, not much in between.
Ride your motorcycle or scooter on this day to demonstrate:

I have had my bike for a year or so now. Out of that year, only half was on the road.
I was scared when I first put my hands on this big hunk of power. I am still nervous when I get on her, but, I have also stayed on the country roads where there is not a lot of traffic and just go at my own pace, no matter what. I do not ride in groups yet either. I used to walk my bike across gravel, sand, leaves, etc.. but, as I rode more and more.. I now ride her slowly across, not walk. I started on mountains, in windy weather, and rode in rain, as my first experiences. Eventhough I still get nervous, I can't believe I waited so long to ride. I will never go back.
It will get easier and it WILL be worth it.
