Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley September 18, 2016

Happy Sunday friends. Today I’m finishing up the last day of a motorcycle training class. Crazy right? It’s equal parts challenging and thrilling and today is test day. Yikes, I hope I pass!

Why am I putting my self through this course? I’ll tell ya! Traveling in Europe this past summer sparked my longtime desire to own a Vespa and ride it around my home town. It’s been a dream of mine for a few years but to do so and be insured in California I need a M1 license. To get one I’m taking a safety course where I train on a real motorcycle. It’s challenging to say the least, but thrilling too. I’m definitely outside my comfort zone, wish me luck!

  1. I took the course and got my motorcycle endorsement two years ago. It’s been so much fun riding around, I splurged on a new Harley. :o)

  2. Riding around is much more entertaining than sit inside a car right? Wish you the best on your motorcycle training class!
