My daughter just turned 21 and bought herself a 2011 Kaw Ninja 250 with 1,000 miles on it. Just starting out, will take the MSF class next weekend. Her bf rides a Suz Savage and a Gixxer 600. Between my bro's Yam, these bikes and my two, we will have a full garage this summer ... looking forward to some warmer weather and good riding times!
For her bday, I picked her up a new riding jacket and signed up both of us for a Ride Like a Pro course in a few weeks. I thought that would be a good way to help her develop good skills, and I am sure it will be good for me too. In the meantime, we will get some practice under her belt, need to get 1,000 miles before the RLAP course. I'll be spending a lot of time talking about defensive driving, hoping that she understands just how invisible she will be. We are dressing the bike up in pink to match her helmet and new jacket to help with visibility.
Any suggestions on what else I should do to help her start riding safely?
Here she is with her new ride (she is just a passenger for now). She is really excited (and I have to admit, so am I)!
