2002 Honda Shadow ACE 750
After years of riding "backseat", I gave myself the gift of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's beginning riders course for my 45th birthday. Not only was I the oldest newbie in the class, I was also the least confident, and therefore the worst, rider they had probably ever had! Fast forward to one year later, and this is me spending a weekend riding "twisties", including highway 89A near Jerome, AZ - 158 curves and 17(?) switchbacks in 12 miles of gorgeous mountain road. Living in sunny southern Arizona, I ride everyday to work (50 miles a day) plus on the weekends, just for fun..... I ride! I don't park my bikes unless the temperature gets below 38 degrees at night because we normally warm up into the mid-40s or better during the day in the winter. My other bike is a 1986 Yamaha Virago 700, and I'm still looking for my first harley. Bonus: on highway trips, I've gotten 65 mpg from both bikes, and in town I get 50 mpg or better. Cindi
