My wife, a new rider, accidently droped her bike the other day as she was leaving our udergroud parking lot. She wasn't hert and and the bike only suffered a broken mirror and scratched turn signal. (gotta love those EX500's)
She is now very upset and discouraged about the whole sport and could use some reasuring from all of you.
I tell her it's all part of the learning curve and I droped my first bike at least 3 time as I was learning, but it would be nice for her to learn that it's happened to other people as well.
She has had a Motor Cycle Safety course and is a good rider. I will miss her riding with me dearly if she gives up in frustration.
Many thanks for your input.
