she needs to get the shifting (not stalling) and braking pattern down. you know just be more comfortable on the bike, on the street.

Thanks Jackie, sorry we missed you this weekend. I promise i'll let her out next weekend for a ride

We did end up finally going for a ride, in the freeway this time too! She doesn't stall, but she seems to hesitant.

You can apply front brakes according to lean angle. I was leaned over half way and could use around 70% of my brakes, that's being pretty hard on the brake.

Just need to apply them gradually and not a hand full at once which causes a locked front.



Enjoy the weather

Here in mid east Canada we got 22C/71F out of nowhere for today. Lots of riding in the afternoon, last warm/sunny day for us here.
Thanks, we've done a couple of panic brakes already but i tell her not to slam on the rear. 75 front 25 back.

That's why you don't go round blind corners fast. Add spilt diesel from an unsecured fuel tank, slippery wet shit dropped off a tractor, a vehicle coming out of a gate or blind intersection, a pair of cyclists riding abreast, .....................


If you can't make a controlled stop in the distance you can see to be clear, you're going too fast.

Lol, not until after she has more experience under her belt. But hopefully we can all ride soon and get her there sooner rather than later

my first bike trackday, was novice school with keigwins at Thill. my carpool passenger was a gal that had only been riding two months on a 250. not a daily rider either, like once a week. she had a blast, and won a free trackday in the raffle.

I would consider signing her up for the novice school, but i want that do that more than here. Maybe they'll give us a couples discount.

Ok folks more help is needed. Girlie is complaining about her hands getting numb after longer rides and the handlebar shaking too much.

I'm guessing alignment or tires for the shaking? Any insight for the numbness?

Any cupping or uneven wear in the front tire? As far as the numbness, I've never experienced it with the exception of riding in very cold weather w/o gloves, maybe the shaking is causing the numbness, maybe she's gripping too hard and her hands are getting tired? Take the bike out yourself and see if you notice any shake.
