Anyway, she got on the Shadow and we went over some of the basics from the class. She put the bike in gear and started to take off. But as we all did when we started riding a bike for the first time, it stalled. Actually, it stalled several times. First she got off and said it was too big of a bike. Then I could see the determination in her eyes. She refused to let the bike kick her butt. So she got back on. After stalling a few more time she finally got the Shadow rolling. And rolling she did. Actually, she said she was going to ride for 10 minutes. Well, ten minutes turned into an hour.
I was so proud of her. She did great! Of course, she is hooked and now calls the Shadow…her bike. I see her getting her own licenses in the next few months. She is ready to practice again and I see us visiting the GTCC parking lot pretty often in the next few weeks.
Here is a picture of Slick on the Shadow. She looks like real motorcycle momma.
Slick on "HER BIKE"
Until next time and happy riding!
