A few millenia ago, in my last previous life, I actually invented the motorcycle. Unfortunatey the motorcycle battery strap had not been invented yet so I just wedged a screwdriver down in from the top to hold the battery tight. The screwdriver also doubled as the seat . . . . Kinda looked like the post on a bicycle. Also very unfortunately, at that same time some other dude had just invented the horse saddle so this whole horse riding thing kinda got popular and undercut my invention. So - long story even longer, I waited until THIS life and started riding a Bridgestone 90 trail bike when I was 10. They hadn't invented "rider down" treads either (had to wait for Al Gore to invent the internet) so no one knew about the time I tipped over in the sand and burnt my little knee on the muffler.

I was 32... the plan was to get a bike for me but I think we both expected it would end up being his bike as I've never been much of a daredevil or adrenalin junkie. It was a rocky start learning how to ride, but once I pulled a wile e coyote high siding into a wall of bushes and a chain link fence, and was able to jump up without a scratch laughing "I wanna do that again", there was no chance of him ever getting my bike. No, I didn't want to high side again... just realized I had just done what I was so afraid of and crashed, and I was ok. (ok, so flying was a little fun too but I don't want the sudden stop the fence provided.) And yes, the high side was me learning the hard way to look where you want to go not where you're going. Had been taught that in MSF but that's where it really sank in.
