Don't Fear The Unknown.


Day 2 of our Motorcycle class, and it is just as exhilarating and scary as I thought!



Sometimes: The thought of learning to control a motorcycle is scary.
Always: Wait...it is just scary. Haha.

Sometimes: I have no clue where my desire to ride comes from.
Always: I reminisce about my trip to Sturgis, and the bug bites me all over again!

Sometimes: I think having my own bike would be cool.
Always: I realize that I love wrapping my arms around Will, so I still want to ride with him.

Sometimes: Trying new things in general can be really scary.
Always: The only way to stop learning, is to stop living.


I would love to share more, but after a nine hour day (five of which were in 90+ degree weather), I am exhausted! For now- I would love it if you go check out my guest post on the hot-tottie Jamie's blog!
She does this thing where she features Military bases where bloggers like lil ol' me are stationed. If you are military, it is the best way to get info on different posts, but if you aren't, you can see more in depth as to how/where we live! I happen to live in a VERY cool place, so definitely check it ;)
Pretty please? I don't want to feel like a loser.


Let's hope that after today, I will be an officially Certified Motorcyclist!
Check Twitter for photos and updates. Whoop Whoop.

Hubby already has his license, but I took the class about two years ago. It was really hot, when I took it, especially with all that leather and gear and helmet. I ended up quitting on the second day. I really had no intentions of getting a bike or ever riding by myself. I just thought it would be fun haha. I just got frustrated with the whole process. There were two groups, and they split my hubby (then boyfriend) and I up (not on purpose). The instructor guy that I had that was having us do the exercises was really condescending and made me feel really stupid and insecure. He told me to give it more gas, so I did. The bike went out from under my legs, and I was like..I quit. After that, I had thought about doing it again, but taking the private class. I never did though.

Good luck girl!

You go, girl! Being a bad @SS chick :)

One of my girl friends learned to ride in college, had her own bike and everything. I think the only reason she got rid of the bike was cuz she didn't ride it as much as she had wanted and it was an extra expense, but she still loves it. Go you!

Jamie said...

Love that you're trying to do it on your own despite mostly just wanting to ride w your hubs. Too cute.

Nicole Marie said...

Funny how I can relate to the having a 'trill' to drive a motorcycle but once I hop on I become very afraid. Before I experience an accident (fractured my tight, brakes went :/) I had very little to fear. Now I am so so. Congrats on your license!
