I've just fallen in love . I bent my gear lever so borrowed a friend's 50cc scooter to get it fixed. Cruising into town on the scooter gave me a great boost in confidence to go closer to the speed limit on the bike and handle it better at low speeds/intersections... So I got my gear lever fixed and went for a ride. After a week of not enjoying riding because of my fears, now all I want is to learn how to handle my bike in crappy situations and ride, ride, ride... How sweet it is to ride a motorbike!
