Re: New in Town

Good news! My instructor rode the bike for a bit earlier this week and got it running much better. We were not able to do a lesson today because he has no AC at his place but as soon as he gets it up and running, we're going to do a lesson. More pics and video this time will be forthcoming!

Re: New in Town

So my new instructor and I FINALLY had an actual lesson today. Look! We even have video:

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/JMtzLRmrR3U" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

For some reason, the video is not displaying so here is a link: https://youtu.be/JMtzLRmrR3U

Sorry it's not better. We waited til it got cool and unfortunately, it was also getting dark.

We worked on turns, understanding gear shifts, and using both brakes. I stayed in 1st gear this time and we're going to add 2nd gear next time.

I had SO much fun. Thank you again, Marko!

Re: New in Town

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. My instructor and I have both been busy. The weather and my health have also factored into our lesson opportunities.

Here is another video. We've been practicing sharp turns, which I'm slowly getting better at.

Thanks for your patience, Marko!

Re: New in Town

We've been practicing switching from 1st to second and back to 1st. I forgot to mention that. I feel like I'm doing well. It is the coolest feeling to ride across that parking lot and just go.

Re: New in Town

Hey Marko!

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. We actually haven't done anything new on the bike lately. I've been trying to learn more about shifting gears so there's been a lot of me asking questions from the back of my instructor's bike and trying to see without spilling us over. No accidents so far! My instructor and I have been focusing on 'feeling' the bike ready to shift up or down, how it feels to shift gears, and what different gears feel like. He actually just got a new bike so we've been learning together.
As I'm sure you've figured out, my instructor and have decided that I am ready for something with a clutch. Pretending to squeeze the invisible clutch on the little red bike will only get me so far. :P
We were planning to do a beach trip down your way one weekend here soon and return the bike. I'll keep you posted on the when. We're waiting for the weather and our schedules to cooperate.

Thank you again for the loan and for all of your patience. I have definitely learned a lot.

Enquirey Minds wanna know the scoop and whats going on . .


FILL US IN UP TO THIS POINT GsxrGrl .

Lemme see here , This is mid July of 18 , bike was picked up mid November of 14 , so a little more than 3 and 1/2 yrs if my math is right .

So you've had her about 42 months or more , plus a new inspection sticker , a new license plate sticker along with a full yr of insurance for ya when ya picked her up .

I thought I was doing the right thing , offering up a bike with the fixins to get you rolling on 2 , I think it was anyway .


I txted you earlier this morning but haven't got a reply , so I figured maybe your # changed or something , so i'm trying this way , hopefully you still check in here from time to time .

Re: New in Town

She created a new login - TexasFleur. You may be able to reach her through that. I have Chad’s phone number if you need it. After I fixed the bike, it was in running condition when I left around 2 months ago.

Saw her at our regular bike night tonight, and gave her your number. Hopefully she'll call you.

Re: New in Town

So 5 days after being given your number (that she already had before anyway) and being informed you're posting and inquiring about the return of your bike after 3-1/2 years, not a single call, PM or text? Totally unexcuseable. And this was after she stated 1-1/2 years ago that your bike would be returned soon once a weekend with good weather comes along.

And meanwhile she is still attending TWT posted meets? Come on GsxrGirl or TexasFleur whoever you are, wake up. If not her, how about her BF or parents who also are on TWT? Someone light a fire and get her to return the borrowed property ASAP.
