Got a situation where I think I'm having an early mid-life crisis. At the age of 29, I've had my learners permit twice before but have let it expire both times after selling my bike to get 'sensible'. My first bike was a Yamaha DT175 and my second was a Honda NSR250. I'm starting to get an itch again and have a crazy idea (so I'm told) to buy another bike, probably something like a KLR650 or DR650 to do long road trips away for multiple nights (maybe weeks!). This idea is not being met well by the missus or family, particularly as we have saved a house deposit and are planning to to purchase our first piece of real estate soon. The bike would really only be a toy. So out to you netriders - what should I do?
