Learning To Fly

Monday, July 27th, 2009

I just completed a Basic Rider Course given by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation this weekend. It isn’t  mandatory but not only is it a great way to learn and practice on someone else’s motorcycle but you also get your license once you pass a fairly easy test at the end.

A couple of nights were spent watching videos and discussing safety, then a written test was given based on sample questions that we studied at home. (I got 100%).

Saturday and Sunday we got to choose a motorcycle that we felt comfortable on, and starting with the very basics rode around a huge parking lot for about 4 1/2 hours each day. I had some experience on a friends bike but there were several people that had never ridden before, including one woman who never even drove a stick shift. The only thing that made it hard was that it was really hot, especially with a full face helmet, long sleeves, boots, and gloves. I felt like Kenny from South Park when I tried to ask a question, so I ended up just following the people in front of me that seemed to be doing it right.

Sunday afternoon it had rained in the morning and by my 1:30 class it was dry. We all knew it was only a matter of time until another thunderstorm, but it held off almost all day. Around 4:30 it was getting very dark, and the instructors sort of rushed the rest of the training. We were briefed for the test which involved quick stops, cornering, swerving, and a figure 8. They kept saying that if you fall you fail, which was not very comforting to any of us but no one did, and by the time we finished it was just starting to rain.

Everyone passed, and as we stood under an awning and watched it pour they handed out our license and congratulated us. It was a fantastic feeling of accomplishment and except for being exhausted like everyone else I felt great!

I highly recommend this to anyone considering getting a motorcycle. The bikes are small enough to handle safely and you get to learn from professionals. One girl in the morning class decided this was not for her and she went home. Better that then buying one and then realizing it. Now all I have to do is make sure my helmet, jacket, boots, and gloves all match. For some reason that wasn’t covered in class.

Holding On

gamblers all

sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think,
I’m not going to make it, but you laugh inside
remembering all the times you’ve felt that way, and
you walk to the bathroom, do your toilet, see that face
in the mirror, oh my oh my oh my, but you comb your hair anyway,
get into your street clothes, feed the cats, fetch the
newspaper of horror, place it on the coffee table, kiss your
wife goodbye, and then you are backing the car out into life itself,
like millions of others you enter the arena once more.

you are on the freeway threading through traffic now,
moving both towards something and towards nothing at all as you punch
the radio on and get Mozart, which is something, and you will somehow
get through the slow days and the busy days and the dull
days and the hateful days and the rare days, all both so delightful
and so disappointing because
we are all so alike and so different.

you find the turn-off, drive through the most dangerous
part of town, feel momentarily wonderful as Mozart works
his way into your brain and slides down along your bones and
out through your shoes.

it’s been a tough fight worth fighting
as we all drive along
betting on another day.
