Hello! I am Mench, I just want to say hi to every one! I am glad to be here.
I was talking with a friend the other day. She's a female friend and we were talking about riding. I was trying to convince here the benefits of riding and I came up with the following:
First, you can save on gas, it is easy to maintain, easy to park, and easy to maneuver when caught in traffic. So far these are the advantages that I know..
Where I sled: Irons michigan,or where there is snow
the best thing about riding " tilting the vertical " . its the closest feeling to being in an airplane as you will get while still sitting on the ground, leaning it as far as you can. rest assured my hd floorboards will need replaced in the life of it. provided you ride the bike and not the other way around. cheaper to maintain. most entry level bikes can pay for themselves in the first year if used for commuting.
I just celebrated my 27th year on a street machine legally. I may have put a few miles on street illegally before I was 15 but thats another topic . I recommend a rider course, our local one is an MSF course worth every penny. I have made sure my entire family has gone through it, all ride. even experianced riders should get in one. I know guys that have ridden as long as me that get very good info from it. I know guys that have walked away after 30 years shaking their heads who were in amazement they had ridden so long with out some of the skills learned. I stuck my boys in those classes at 15 and said you'll get your lic and if you dont use it so be it, but your going to have it and the knowledge to be above average on the road. of course they like me have ridden since 4-5 years old and I knew they would use them.
learn to counter steer and unleash the beast, have fun. I have watched the ride like a pro vid and I can attest its a great vid to advance your skill level on how to ride the bike. its no substitute for an approved safety course.
see me on the road, sturgis bound real soon .
