I'm 39 yrs old and I took the MSF class last August in Hagerstown, Md. I've NEVER ridden a bike in my life but I always loved sportbikes. I always watch MOTOGP, ISLE OF MAN TT, etc. After the class, I end up being the Top Finisher. I couldn't believe it myself because I tried not to watch other people during the riding part of the test. My wife was even with me that last day to watch me. I love her and this is why. She's always been very supportive of me. Here's the best part. When I got my first bike (a used '01 R1) she was the one who went to MVA to get the tag so I can ride the next day (my dayoff). You know what? I NEVER really had any problem with my bike. I got up at 4:40 that morning because I was so anxious to ride it. I rode it around the block for about 10 minutes to get used to it. At 5:00am, I was on I270 heading towards Washington DC. I rode for over 100 miles that morning. Could have been more if I didn't have a doctor's appointment. to this day, I have ridden it for over 4,000 miles with no problem. I ride at night, I rode it a couple of days ago when it was really windy, I guess I just absolutely LOVE riding. This is a dream come true for me. Now I know what it's like when they say "there's nothing like it". I love your world. Question, how do you upload a photo in this section? I'd like to show you guys my ride. thanks.
