Well my brother is out there zipping around on his motorcycle.
I thought I rode a lot… my brother is putting my mile count to shame. He’s already got 3000 miles under his belt and only had the bike for a month.
I’ve done a bit of riding with him, every morning we ride to work together and we have spent a couple of Sunday mornings puttering around the back roads. I hope to get him into the twisties soon now that he has brakes that stop the bike better and to expand his horizons a bit more.
It’s been fun, and despite the fact that I have been trying to make sure I warn him about things before he encounters them. I’ve only been partially sucessful with this. He ended up riding home in a heavy fog and had nothing good to say about that experience. He also has had his fair share of heavy traffic which when you’re new and not comfortable with lane sharing can be very unpleasant.
Over all he’s doing good and I look forward to getting him out for more weekend rides before the good weather ends.
