Starting somewhere

August 2018

I finished a weekend new rider course and got licensed after my 2nd attempt (in my defense, I’m a nervous test taker and the guy in front of me flew off his bike during the quick stop, shredding his jeans and breaking my concentration). But I definitely wasn’t ready to ride my Harley. Much heavier than the tiny Honda from class, getting it out of my driveway and onto the road felt like an accomplishment. For a couple weeks in September, I took early morning rides down my windy rural road, hoping for no witnesses to my tentative progress. After a quick stop for a deer on a steep hill (helpful that I drove a standard in high school), it was evident that I could not, in fact, learn to ride a motorcycle in one weekend despite the license in my wallet. This photo marks my first successful mid-day ride to an actual destination❤️
