Hey all, Total newcomer to motorcycles thinking about getting rid of the second family car (that is on its last legs) and moving to two wheels. Wil probably have a few dumb questions along the way as i feel my way around... Bout to get my learner's... haven't ridden as an adult (done some pretty frequent pillioning though) but did ride dirt bikes when i was a kid and am a regular bicycle commuter... so I have at least a reasonable sense of balance. (In case anyone is wondering my avatar pic is from a very cool vintage flying manual i own - is from a section describing the 4 stroke engine cycle). Safe travels to you all!
