A New B

I was referred to this forum by a motorcycling friend. I am probably older than many of you, but I think I might enjoy motorcycling. I will be tackling the required course soon and will want to find out the best course instructors and where to buy a motorcycle. I haven't decided what type of bike I want yet. Any recommendations for an over 50 new B?

Make sure you wear what some consider proper gear. I just learned how important it was to satisfy the requirements of some members. You never know when you may need help.

You like cruising or want something sporty? I have beat the topic up a lot lately but there are a lot of 50+ people that like sport bikes that ride the VFR across country. Ins. is cheap, maintenance is almost nothing, and they are comfortable yet fast and nimble. http://www.vfrdiscussion.com

Welcome to the forum.

I won't tell you where to take the course since I'm obviously going to be extremely biased.

Start looking at all types of bikes. Think about what you want to do with this bike. But, don't buy one until you take the course. You'll learn about different motorcycles and their uses during class, plus you can make a list of questions to ask your Instructors.

Happy Hunting!
