YouTuber lawmansbabe1969 has provided us with some pretty epic internet gold for today! She uploaded some video a few year back of her man’s first ever ride on a Harley-Davidson (if we’re not mistaken, it was his first ride ever), and it goes so horribly wrong, that we can’t help but share it. There’s seriously more wrong than right in this video – so much so that we might actually use it as a reason to hand out some helpful beginner’s riding tips in this post.
Firstly, the man in the video was wearing sandals, wore no helmet, and was novice rider. He had three strikes against him before he even fired up the bike. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the controls seem way too far forward for him; he should have them changed to mid instead. To add insult to injury, the bike had an unnecessary set of ape hangers attached to it – which is a serious no for any new rider. On the plus side, lawmansbabe1969 says that he did learn how to ride the bike and ride it well within time.
Keep in mind that everyone has their first time as you watch the pretty hilarious video below. On the positive, even the rider had a good sense of humor about his very first try. Tell us the story of your very first time on a motorcycle in the comments below. And remember kids, if you’re a first time rider, NEVER, and we mean NEVER ,buy a brand new bike, or even an expensive used one. Do yourself a favor and instead, get a decent beater, because as the man in today’s video proved, you will dump it.
