For one birthday, his present to me was to enroll me in a motorcycle riding course so that I could get my M1 endorsement and learn the basics from certified instructors. Even though he is a phenomenal rider, and actually also a very good teacher, he thought I should learn from the pros, which turned out to be a great idea.
I rode a small Honda Rebel in the class, and spent a weekend navigating cones and practicing safety braking. When I passed my test, I was elated. The photos are of me and the Rebel.
It was not long after that when I decided to buy a bike, which thrilled my boyfriend.
He has always been a trooper when it came to participating in my sports, like horse riding, because doing things together brings us closer. This would add one more shared interest, which would be fun for both of us. The idea of a motorcycle you can take on trails as well as roads appealed to me. I love anythign that is multi-purpose, because I love variety and options.
We researched together, and decided that my first bike should be a Kawasaki KLX 250s. I chose black, and we got a 2010 model new at the dealer. Please visit my "mods" page to see how we modified the stock bike to make is fit me better as well as improve functionality. Some of the mods were just for fun and aesthetics.
The adventure began there!
