Thumb Great thread!

She's loved riding pillion ever since we met three years ago, and has always wanted to ride herself. Well she took her MSF Basic Rider Course last weekend and got off her former mount Charger and onto Killer the XT225 for a spin around the yard. Go, girl! Now she wants a new Suzuki TU250 so we're going to look at one this weekend. The fire is well and truly lit!



Check out the ATGATT - I've been trying to convince her that it's important and the MSF instructors confirmed it, so now she's a believer. It was 90 degrees and about 92% humidity so this inaugural ride didn't last long.

This is a great thread! I'm very proud of her for overcoming some pretty deeply held fears and reservations about her abilities. I suspect I'm not alone in congratulating anyone who takes a step like that, male or female.

Doug
