Learning Curves Become an Escape Artist
I have been riding for over 50 years now. Believe me I know how to escape and I love to do it on my Harley. As I have gotten older, I have further realized that I not only need to ride but I need to do all I can to ride better. To be more attentive at all times. To commit to safety first at all times for myself and for Frances who is usually on behind with her arms around me (It gives me chicken skin just to think about having her there).
I want to become a riding artist
With this in mind, I completed the Motorcycle Safety Foundation RiderCourse last month. I went to my local Harley dealership and signed up for the weekend course. Two other members of our Learning Curves team took the weekend course with me, Amy and Cannon. I was amazed and pleased at how much fun we had and how much I learned even though I thought I was a pretty good rider with 50+ years in the saddle.
A thought from the Harley-Davidson Rider’s Edge handbook:
The Riding Bug was discovered in 1903 by William Harley and Arthur Walter Davidson. Research indicates the Riding Bug is most prevalent in and around Harley-Davidson dealerships, and the Rider’s Edge New Rider Course is a prime carrier. Symptoms of the bug include feelings of “complete euphoria” and “total freedom.”
Once infected, many individuals feel compelled to pass the Riding Bug on to family and friends.
I don’t know if I will ever be considered a true riding artist but I sure want to be as good as I can be for both your safety as our guests and that of Frances and myself.
Escape the Ordinary on Upcoming Rides
There are two types of people in the world: people who ride motorcycles and people who wish they could ride motorcycles.
The summer riding season is here. While registration is closed for our Grand Circle Adventure in May and Canadian Rockies tour in June. there is still space available on our Top of the Colorado Rockies Ride (Roy’s favorite Utah-based ride) and Utah National Parks “Red Rock Rumble” (Frances’ favorite Utah based ride).
Those who are looking for our Hawaii Ride in October should call soon due to very limited availability.
Don’t just plan an ordinary weekend away from the office. Please plan to escape the ordinary and join us on a ride this year.
