You Can Cross “Buy a Motorcycle” Off My List

Everyone in my family rides, or knows how to ride. Motorcycles that is. So I grew up around a dad that always had two motorcycles, and around bike festivals and platanos.

Motorcycles are a huge deal in Puerto Rico! It’s always nice weather out, so why the hell not right?

And there you have it folks! My first time on my very first motorcycle. My best friend decided he would teach me to ride it that day, and I learned suprisingly fast.

The bike is a Honda CB500F, and I fell in love with it more and more everyday! I enjoy riding, I enjoy the breeze hitting (more like punching) me, I enjoy the speed, the freeness, everything! And yeah, it took me a long time to become comfortable with the bike, but that’s a given when it comes to me (insert crying laughing face here). Not everybody is going to be amazing right off the bat, (especially not me) but I got the hang of it and I’m glad I was able to say I completed this item on my list!

List of recommendations for new riders:

-Get a bike for your height

-Get GOOD ass riding gear

-Leather is better

-Helmets MATTER

-Don’t be afraid of the bike

-California drivers are horrible

-Assume no one EVER sees you

-Always check your bike before you ride it

Ride safe!
