Seriously, surely I'm not the only woman with a hysterectomy that rides a motorcycle... and reads this site!

Well, I ride on the same bike as my husband. Does that count? We decided a long time ago that with my coordination, he would rather have me where he knows where I am, rather than driving my own bike. I'm more comfortable with that too! Just riding his mini-bikes takes A LOT of concentration for me.

We love to get out early mornings when it is cool and ride around the "hills" in W. Texas. It is peaceful and energizing for us!

Of course it counts! It takes a lot of skill to be a good passenger.

We rode two-up for years before I got the bug to learn to ride... then someone stole the bikes from the msf course and I didn't get around to it for another ten years. Now I've been riding two years and have three bikes. Of course, I can't ride now at 3 weeks post-op.

We have a few "hills" here in north central Florida, too! We love mornings, too, and I'm very fond of sunset rides. I hope your DH invested in a comfortable passenger seat for you!

He has thought of my comfort as much as possible. I have a nice, wide seat with a tall back, foot pads instead of pegs and grab bars on the sides. I can ride for a long time comfortably, but we can't wait for our step-up bike - a new model Goldwing. Someday!! Right now he has a Kawasaki 1500 which is big and rumbly. What do you ride?

Hey,

Triumph Bonneville, Buell Blast (go to work bike), Suzuki SV650. If I'm good, Bob will let me ride his Buell Lightning, but I don't ride his HD Dynaglide. I'm in awe of riders who muscle around a 600+ lb bike.

I figure when I can walk briskly without discomfort I'll try getting back on a bike.

Ride safe,
Sarah

Sharon,

Have you checked into the MSF course? I learned to ride on a Rebel at the course and I thought it was really easy to ride. I highly recommend the course. DH who had been riding for decades took it with me and said he learned some tricks. He was the star student. I took the class a second time, a year later, because I hadn't been able to practice my skills (family obligations).

Maybe someone would let you get on a small bike and try the clutch and throttle and so on in a parking lot. I did that with my brother a few weeks ago and he's got himself a vintage Yamaha 500 and plans to take the course.

After I took the course I spent a LOT of time in parking lots with DH, who is a patient coach, before I rode on the street.

Check out vtwinmama.com, too. Great site for beginners with excellent links.

Triumph Thunderbird '95 here (passenger ) All black & chrome
We only went back to bikes 2 months ago (after a 15 year break) I forgot how much fun it is.
I can't ride as often as I would like as I'm too uncomfortable 3 weeks out of 4, but you don't forget how.

We live in London, but the countryside is 15 min away east or south, about 30 min if north or west, so lots of good british counrty lanes to roam around in

I must admit I was dead nervous the first couple of times in case I did something wrong, but I'm relaxing back into it no probs.

Now DH is looking at the new Triumph Rocket for summer & a new Enfield for winter.

me too....another biker chick.

Unfortunately I had to sell my ride a couple of years ago....needed some quick cash. My baby was an 84 Virago 750....all customed with all the chromey bits and lots o leather!

We still have 2 bikes though....a 1955 Triumph Thunderbird and a Yamaha Seca 750....I still ride the Yamaha once in a while.

I've fallen in love with the new Ducati Monster....I think it's a 600cc. Must save pennies.
