Local guy, 20, third day on a new HD lost it, and got into guard rails and cable. Dead on the scene. Been ridding stuff from eight years old, but bikes can and do bite hard sometimes.

Ive been riding mini bikes since I was 5. Had dirtbikes my whole life untill a few years ago and sold it. But I know what bikes can do to people, im not saying I ride perfect 100% of the time but I know what makes me a little uncomfortable and I dont go that far on the road. In the dirt is a whole differnt story.

The place he crashed, I have ridden many times. I was just on that lake dam last Sunday. It is long and straight in the middle, and bends on both ends. Bikes hit over 100mph on that dam. Been there, done that. Bikes sometimes miss judge the end of the dam. Sometimes deer or other animals cross the road.

I do not have one but I am tempted to get my license, I have actually never rode a motorcycle before but I knew a girl the same way and she got 100% on both tests to get her motorcycle endorsement on her license.

I would probably be like pee-wee herman and crash through a sign like in pee-wee's big adventure

My Mom rides a Yamaha Stryker. You'll be fine. Bear in mind that she worked up to that size bike.

I want to get one myself. The only thing stopping me is that pathetic little paycheck. I just simply can't afford it.

You won't know till you try. Do it the right way, seek out a Riders Course in your area:

I don't know what they cost off-base (USAF pays the freight for making them mandatory), but I suspect they are worth every cent.

The dealer called me today and said that all the parts I ordered were not in yet. They will be able to do the exhaust, air cleaner, tuner, and my seat came in. Still waiting for the ape hangers, cables and grips, forward controls and the sissy bar. I didnt ask them if my licence relocator is in but thats the least of my worries.
