I got my wife to get on her Vespa and ride it.

I had to ride it to an empty parking lot and then run her through everything and how to ride. She got up and running and went further and faster than I expected.

She liked it!!!

I was nervous she was going to stay too nervous and never get up and running.

But I think she got more confident watching me ride it to the lot (Thanks Vonage).

So I am hoping she will be more confident when she get to the MSF Course in two weeks and will join me when my MP3 comes in.

Funny thing getting a bike has been her dream for decades. This year I got it for her and it has sat there since Christmas waiting for her to ride it.

I ordered my scooter because she wanted a riding partner.

But the longer it sat there the more the negative thoughts came in telling her she might not ride it, might not get licensed.

But Yesterday it was a change in the thoughts.

You're lucky, my wife wanted a horse and was afraid to ride.

The good thing is I have gotten to take it around while I wait for her to get her license.

But if you ever saw "Tommy Boy" and the Fat Guy in a Little Coat scene https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYB3Fx0a8-4

Yeah I feel like that riding the Vespa. I think I weigh more than the bike.
