new rider and new to all forums

Post by jasongsgirl on Sun Jul 29, 2012 12:00 am

Hello all! My name is Lucinda and my husband Jason (jpg0511) has been a member of this forum for a couple of months now and has a 2012 victory Jackpot and I am about to get my very first bike on Monday its a 2009 Suzuki GZ 250 and taking my riding lessons on august 2nd. I am VERY nervous and EXCITED at the same time! I CANT WAIT to learn how to ride! If any one has any advice I would love to hear it, Thanks.

Congrats on the new bike. Welcome from Gulf shores. My wife wants to learn to ride. As far as advice, always ride like the the cars around will do the most stupid thing possible.

Welcome from west mobile. Just remember that every car around you wants to run you over. As long as you keep that in your mind you will do fine. Good luck.

Congratulations, Remember no one else knows how to drive, and if you think they could do some thing stupid, they probably will! Ride free, ride far!

Welcome from Fairhope

As far as advice goes............ I think my best advice is ride your own ride, don't feel like you have to do anything the idiot in front of you tried, and practice slow speed and emergency maneuvers (panic stops) in large empty parking lots often enough that they become 2nd nature.

Anyone can ride fast, it takes skill to maneuver correctly at slow speeds.

And just remember to put your feet down when you stop. Razz it may sound funny but I know a few people that can't seem to figure that one out. geek
