Holy Motorcycle Mama!!

This is for all you "City Slickers" out there! Can you drive 2 miles from your house and do this?!
This is the first time I have ever even been on a dirt bike. I refused to get on without my Hubby. I insisted that if I was going to get hurt, he would too. He, of course, was game for the beating! After several attempts at trying to start the dang thing, I finally got us off and running. As you can tell, we are moving pretty slow, (never even got out of first gear).

After driving around and making several turn-arounds, faithful Hubby decides to bail off. Says that I can do it all by myself! Are you kidding me?!? I'm pretty sure the girl-i-ness came out of me as I was screaming quite loudly!

But....I did it! No crashes, and I was able to start and stop a few times all by my little ole self. Girl Power!!

By the way.............my kids thought I was pretty cool! I mean seriously what 29 year old mom jumps on a CR-80 for the first time and doesn't even crash?

That IS pretty dang cool. I would have crashed the first time and the next and the next...let's put it this way, I'm still working on not being wobbly on my regular old bike.

Looks like you had a great time!
