It's her first experience with a clutch.

Getting her accustomed to the clutch now will help loads in the future. The XR's are easy to repair as well.

Whoo Hooo!
Get'n up there!
The question is.....Can she pick it up?
Tell her I'm proud of her!
Moving up & staying with it.
Now....The faster she goes the further ahead she has to look.

Ha! I am having loads of fun on it.
I've been tearing up the neighborhood all morning. I'm just waiting for the neighbors to call the po po.

Oh wait, my neighbor is a policeman. But he's not home.

I'm not sure if she can, but we will practice proper lifting techniques together.
One, two, three, Mom and daughter will both lift their Hondas ...

I'm sure you are! I'm 6'2" and about 205 and I used to buzz around on my wifes all the time!

Now next step is to get her some good gear.
