Cool New in Cut N Shoot

Hello, Finally decided it is time to post an introduction. My name is Paula. I am a CHL/LTC instructor when I am not being a mom to twin boys. I got my first bike right before Christmas and tried to take the motorcycle course without riding or knowing anything about motorcycles. I was kicked out of the class after dropping the bike twice for braking when turning. I would just panic and hit the brake. I have since been practicing and think I am ready to take the course again. I have learned to ride with minimal use of my brake. I no longer panic and while corners still freak me out some I am doing much better. I am really hoping to find some other ladies in the Conroe area that ride. My weekdays are free and I am usually teaching on the weekends. I don't have any pics of me and my bike yet but when I get some I will post them.

Welcome...after you take the course and get comfortable with your bike come see us in Brenham...my wife rides a ZX6 and rides with our groups every weekend...we have curvy roads out here which might not be exciting for you but once you get used to cornering its really fun to ride curves...good luck with your class...

Re: New in Cut N Shoot

Welcome.

Once you get the hang of all the controls, I'll recommend taking a class at the track. You don't have to want to be a racer to learn, and you'll get the hang of those corners really fast.

Of course, considering your occupation, I probably don't have to tell you how you can benefit from one on one instruction in a closed course.

Oh, and it's really fun too.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Try a 125cc scooter first. They are light enough that even if you drop it, it won't freak you out. They're probably much easier to learn that a 250 motorcycle that weighs probably close to 400 pounds.
