I mentioned on Friday that I was taking a course this past weekend. Had you asked me a year ago if I would be taking a Motorcycle Safety Course, I would have probably laughed at you.
Terry and I have shared a car for almost 10 years now. It’s worked out fine for the most part. But over the past year, we’ve really started to find it annoying. He has more of a commute, I picked up more volunteer gigs, c’est la vie. We didn’t want to get a second car. It’s a large expense, and we think it’s a little much for just the two of us. But an idea popped into my head several months ago, a bit of a compromise.
Let me introduce you to Bumblebee.
How cute is she??? I LOVE her. We haven’t really had a chance to get to know each other yet. We just got her last week and I just took the safety course this past weekend. I need time to gradually ease into this. I want to be safe! That’s priority number 1.
Speaking of safety, although I look adorable in the picture above, this is not anything I will ever wear while actually riding. I shelled out for really good gear! A full head helmet, a protective jacket (with back, shoulder & elbow armor), protective gloves and boots. I won’t be riding any freeways and I doubt I’ll ride in the rain or do any nighttime riding. Since I’ve taken the course, I feel confident in my abilities to ride safely, I am very nervous about other drivers though. Be sure to look out for bikes on the road =)
Have you ever considered a motorcycle or scooter?
