    @CamandJarvis - what model motorbike did you get ? My DH's is way too heavy and tall for me to manage, fine when actually going along, but when stopped at junctions/parking up etc. it's just too much for me; I can't handle it. I've not had a bike since I was 20 something and tend to ride pillion nowadays, but sometimes I feel tempted to get my own again; I do hold a full licence. Or will I just be having it for the sake? Will it sit mostly in the garage? I don't know, just can't decide!!!

    I was the same way! I've had my full license since 2014, but haven't been on a bike since I got it! I definitely need this refresher course. In particular because I last road was before my back injury/surgery and my body has changed. I feel muuuuuuch better being in a safe environment of a course to re-learn and get comfortable before I attempt being on the street. I live in a quiet neighborhood, but there's still people around. I'm not going to hit main streets until I've gotten very comfortable in my neighborhood, either. I'm setting steps for me to graduate to. Maybe it's the fact that I've grown up or maybe after my injury I'm just more scared, but I'm sure it makes my poor mom feel better about me being on a bike!

    I have a Harley XL1200X 48. It is lighter than BF's Street Bob and doesn't have the engine upgrades he has to add CCs to it. He took it out yesterday to the gas station a block away and said it does have a pep in its step, but not as bad as his Street Bob so as long as I'm careful, I'll be much safer. Plus, I could easily stand it up, even with my bad leg (which happens to be the left leg and the side the bike leans on its kickstand... THAT was the big factor). I'm 5'5 (165cm) and can stand it up and be flat footed which gives me a LOT more confidence in it rather than balancing on the balls of my feet.


    Not the best picture, but I tried! BF's Street Bob is in background and you can see a tad bit of his brand new (to us) Glide there on the left side.

    @CamandJarvis - very nice bobber, imagine it's got a really wondeful throaty sound too. A good brace !! Enjoy, but keep alert and stay safe.

    @quiltingjaine - bunny cake looks delicious!
