I'm a new female rider. I inherited a 2004 Sportster 1200 Custom. I took the MSF class and got my motorcycle endorsement. The bike sat for a very long time and needs to be fully checked and worked over. It goes to the mechanic this afternoon. I'm hoping to get it by the weekend so I can begin my practicing. I learned on a Honda Rebel 250. This is going to be a HUGE change for me!!! Any advice??? I'm sooooooo excited - something I've wanted all my life. But at the same time I am a bit intimidated by the bike. A little nervous. But they say that's good - always good to be a little scared because it makes you more alert and less cocky.
