I have been riding a motorcycle since 1990. I always wanted to ride a motorcycle but my parents would not allow me to ride. It seemed that everyone around me supported the notion that I should not ride a motorcycle. My non riding friends and family were convinced that motorcycling should not be an activity undertaken by a responsible person. It took me until 1990 to break through that anti riding sentiment.
I must admit that I was very concerned about riding a vehicle that offered very little protection from the world at large. However the excitement of riding a motorcycle was too great a call to ignore.

My curiosity was aroused. How do I ride a motorcycle and mitigate the anxiety of everyone around me? Education is the answer. If I arm myself with knowledge then I can better address the issues at hand. I began my quest for motorcycling knowledge in 1990 and it continues today.

The more I know the better it gets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
