Hello All, I've been an on & off long time lurker. I'm a MTB racer turned MX & Offroad racer. Last year I decided I wanted to get my girlfriend who is into "traditional" outdoor recreation into some two wheeled fun. Despite that she's never driven a manual we had her come to the MX track and ride my friends klx110 then crf230l in the controlled setting of the parking lot. She figured it out right away and within an hour we we're cruising around the ATV tracks. The next week I started looking for a good bike for her to ride and trails (and maybe me to ride to work). I quickly found a 2009 Super Sherpa with 800 miles! Sold "new" in 2013 to a riding school that folded soon after and had been sitting on it for some time. Her first day riding that on some county roads and a ATV trail went so well I bought my friends crf230l a few weeks later and we rode some of the alpine loop as an overnight staying in Ouray. I got knee surgery in December so I am just about to start riding MTB's & offroad again but we have been riding the side roads near us a ton this Summer. This past weekend we decided to try our first motorcycle camping trip (which makes me feel like I can finally be a contributing forum member and not just a lurker) and had a blast. She was bummed we couldn't ride a section of trail instead of riding the country road and her favorite part was the bit of ATV trail we rode. We did 109 miles without needing to flip to reserve but she was already looking into options to carry more fuel for bigger trips in the future. Needless to say she's hooked!
