you're a shoe-in
kidding, for you. Only question is, why didn't the fiance help her with this?
I didn't realize how great it feels when you explain something to a rider and it "clicks" and makes them a better rider or makes their life on a bike better and wanted to share my experience.
This weekend, my friend's fiancee joined us for a ride on her gs500. Well 45 minutes into curvy roads, she was complaining of being exhausted. I diagnosed it as a combination of a wrist-ergonomics problem (severly bent wrist when at regular throttle) and a "death-grip" on the bars. (basically arms extremely tense the entire time)
Once I explained to her how to relax and use minimal grip on the bars and not have the left hand fighting the right hand when trying to steer, for the next two hours not only did she pick up the pace considerably (well, we could go the speed limit all of the sudden), but also ended up not being tired at all
/yeah i know CSB but it's pretty awesome when you can explain something to someone and they get it and they do it and they're better off because of it.
