Alright the MRS bought me a bike in July since then I have ridden it every possible moment Over 3k miles in two months. I finally feel semi-competant. It has been one the most painful and frieghtening experiences ever and Probobly on of my proudest achievemnts.
So what was just a way to get 60 MPG has truely become a passion. I went out for a long 200 mile ride today and loved every fricken minute. Still there are days I feel like that Wm. H macy dude in Wild Hogs.
My only regret is that I waited til I was 44 to learn to ride a motorcycle.
Whatch y'all think of Noobs??

If you care about what you are doing and are intelligent enough to treat it and others with respect, I'll ride with you any time. Could care less if you've been on two wheels for two decades or two months.

I wish I would have started earllier as well, Don't sweat the NOOB stuff and don't waist too much time reading all the dick measuring that goes on about who is a poser and who is legit. Sounds like you ENJOY riding and thats what matters.

Thanks to all! Eventhough my friend and neighbor was the sales mgr at the local HD shop-still felt like a douchebag the first time I walked in there.
Today after about a week straight of rain-74 and sunny-didn't wanna get off.
