True. We need some moped riding ladies to swarm this thread. Keep in mind it's not that she was a girl, but that she probably had no idea how to ride a moped.
I hit a wall the first time I rode. I was 7 and on a Honda minitrail. Didn't know to let off the gas to brake. It's made for a funny story ever since then, and just part of learning.
What have you learned? Don't let inexperienced riders ride your bike expecting them to take it around the block like someone who's already gotten bored with 30-35 miles and hour after 6 months and kitted the hell out of their tomos.
Not you, just saying, if you don't ride, you don't know how. It's not a bicycle.
