You just gotta get that "s" out of there for the https part. This software is so old, nobody had secured a website when the Youtube plugin was added!

Drop the first "s". It's a technical issue; the software for this BBS cannot handle included secure references. Just change it to http: instead of https:

I'll insert it below like this:

Tried out a dirt bike before deciding to go for my license, and it was quite different from the Harley type I had the chance to play around on in 2015. Wasn't quite my thing.

Do you accept this challenge, sir RR? Who shall become a (legal) moto psycho first?

Here we are again. This weekend, my daughter took the same class my son took four years ago. At 8 a.m. she had never ridden a motorcycle before, and within an hour all the students were riding slow laps around the parking lot. She spent a total of twelve hours on the bike and another twelve in the classroom. She passed the driving portion of the test on Sunday, and now has a motorcycle permit. We don't have a motorcycle for her yet and she's trying to decide between a motorcycle and a scooter.

My daughter, who was 10 years old when this thread was created, got her motorcycle's license last year and her driver's license today.

Bump for updates?
