In this session of the Motorcycle Mentor Podcast, I share 5 things I’ve learned about beginner riders since I started MotorcycleMentor.com. I bet you can’t guess what they are.

I’ve heard from hundreds of beginning riders over the past few years. Do beginner riders experience similar feelings, struggles, and emotions during their first year? Find out in this podcast.

In addition, I’ll tell you how to handle Harley riders, how to find the best riders to ask questions, and why the Kawasaki Ninja 250R isn’t the best beginner motorcycle for most new riders. I bet you haven’t heard that before.

More specifically, in this session you’ll find out about:

  • Do beginner riders face similar struggles, feelings, and doubts during their first year?
  • Is the Kawasaki Ninja 250R the best beginner motorcycle?
  • Can you reduce your risks on a motorcycle to the same as riding in a car?
  • How to handle ranting Harley riders.
  • Helping a broken-down motorcyclist while traveling with my family in our minivan.

And lastly, if you haven’t already done so, would you take a minute to leave a quick rating and review of the podcast on iTunes by clicking on the link below. It would be extremely helpful for the show and I’m aiming for 100 5-star ratings before the end of the year. That would be awesome for a motorcycle-related podcast.

In this session of the Motorcycle Mentor Podcast, I give you 7 reasons NOT to own a motorcycle.

I realize this might sound strange coming from someone who is passionate about motorcycles, but I believe you should consider the facts before deciding to ride.

If you have family members that aren’t excited about your new hobby, be sure to listen to this podcast. I think I might know why.

More specifically, in this session you’ll find out about:

  • 7 things to consider before you decide to ride a motorcycle.
  • Getting the approval of your family before you decide.
  • How to eliminate resentment over your new purchase.
  • Why credit card debt and new motorcycles don’t mix.

In this first session of the Motorcycle Mentor Podcast, I explain who I am and why I started MotorcycleMentor.com. I also introduce my motorcycle mentors, Fred and Pete.

I started MotorcycleMentor.com in 2005. To say the site has gone through several iterations would be a gross understatement. In the early days, I spent too much time making the site look pretty, instead of focusing on making it valuable. I failed miserably getting the content that my mentors and others had written for me onto the site.

I was embarrassed. To get rid of the knot in my stomach, I sold MotorcycleMentor.com in 2011. But in 2013 I bought it back! Have you ever failed to complete something you KNEW you were supposed to finish? This was the case for me. I explain more in this podcast.

More specifically, in this session you’ll find out about:

  • Who is David Mixson?
  • How I got started riding a motorcycle.
  • How I found my motorcycle mentors.
  • Why I started MotorcycleMentor.com.
  • Why I sold MotorcycleMentor.com, then bought it back 2 years later.
