Hello! My names Heath, I'm 16. I'm from North Carolina. I've never ridden a bike before and I start the MSF course this Friday. I've have watched a ton of videos,read/re-read handbooks and I've sat on bikes in dealerships, so I do know how to ride a bike, but never have. I'll have all the correct clothing/gear and plan on trying my hardest. I'm a very competent person and pretty athletic so I think I'll do ok. From what I have said do you think I'll do ok? I'm a little nervous about failing or dropping the bike. Will I receive the same respect being 16? Any advice for me? Any extra help is appreciated. Thanks in advance. Wish me luck!
