i learned driving a motorcycle when i was in first year high school, about 13years old. when i went to college i had to leave my hometown and my motorcycle. since then i stopped driving it. It's been a year now with "no driving" and almost 7 years of just occassionaly driving. Now am afraid to drive much more we have a new motorcycle, a more advanced one. i wish i could drive again.

If you go back to riding it, you will not be afraid. Just make sure that you wear your helmet and drive defensively, watch those cars. It is dangerous, but it is fun, isn't it?

Sit on your bike, sit still for a while. Get familiar with the controls again. Take an intermediate safety course for refresher. You'll be ok! :)

I am pretty sure you could drive again. It's just a matter of refreshing back what you have learned in motorcycle driving. You need not be scared, ok? You can still do it on your own. :)

Motorcycle - A beautiful green motorcycle.
It's really dangerous to ride on a motorcycle. Don't drive anymore if not extremely necessary. My son rides on a motorcycle in going to and from work. I'm so scare but that's what he likes. It's very much more convenient and cheaper to ride on a motorcycle when he goes to work and so he prefers to have his own ride and that is the motorcycle.

I just also stopped driving recently. Up until yesterday, where I borrowed a motorcycle from my friend. When I was driving it, it felt wierd. Guess you just have to get used to the feeling all over again. Ride safely!
