What's in my Garage? 2013 HD Softail Slim! It is SUPER! :)


Very new rider here. I took an MSF course last year. I didnt even think I was going to pass. I have been wanting to learn how to ride a motorcycle since my husband rides one, and I would much prefer to ride one myself than be a passenger, because I feel like I was always too darn nervous being a passenger, and I wanted to learn so I didnt have to agitate my husband needlessly when he speeds up to 70 mph hahaha.

So I went ahead and enrolled, thinking I might as well give it a shot. and oh boy, I passed without having ridden a motorcycle on my own before I took the field tests with ther course motorcycle. At first I had trouble navigating the clutch and throttle but got the hang of it soon enough! I didnt really think I would ever learn the clutch and throttle maneuver, much more pass the evaluation that Sunday afternoon. Now I ride a Softail Slim and loving it! :)
