Early mid-life crisis--gotta get a bike!

So I've wanted a motorcycle since forever and haven't gotten one for one reason or another (mom didn't like the idea, then wife didn't like the idea--geez). I just turned 30 (total geezer on this forum, I know) and figured I've waited long enough.

I've been lurking around here for a couple of weeks now so I thought I'd make a proper introduction. So, hi everyone! I hope I can join up on a ride sometime once I've got some miles under my belt (I rode a friend's Ninja 250 in college, so I've got a little experience). Maybe I'll get a fiddy and learn how to stunt like the pimps on the stunter's forum (wife would love that . . .).

Also, I've got a WTB thread up if you have an F4i for sale.

MSF class at the asscrack of dawn tomorrow morning! Hope everyone else is having more fun on a Friday night than I am.

Mid Life?

I'm 28 so what does that make me?

Get a starter bike and learn. Get a SV650. They are fun.
