except, one you have extra hand and feet movements.

The actual knowledge gained from being out on the road and handling different adverse conditions,especially 90000 miles, could teach you a few things.

lets just say, you all complain too much bout riding (too hot, too cold, 1960, cagers, streets dangerous and ona nd on). I don't get it.

While I dont discount the similarities, its still a bit more challenging to ride a motorcycle. That being said 90k isnt nothing to be ashamed of either.

In all seriousness though, I learned how to "RIDE" on the scooter.

So when I got the dual purpose, all i had to do was learn how to shift, which i found to be alot simpler than I thought it would be, cause i didn't have to learn how to Shift and "Ride" at the same time. I stalled out maybe 2 times while i was learning.

There is more to motorcycling than shifting.

So again all motorcycling is extra hand and feet movements.

I truly do not find it more difficult. Now I can hop on anybike and have no worries bout the actual riding aspect.

+ steering torque, steering angle, lean angle, counter-steering and many other attributes.

BUT, I can see where you are coming from....

That's what i meant bout learnin to "ride", without the added stress of learnin' how to shift.

Once i had those techniques, once i hopped on a standard shiftin was a breeze.

Some people are naturally talented and learn at a fast rate.
Especially if they come from a background involving balance sports.

One year here and 18k miles.

Many people have been driving cars for over 20 years, but they usually suck .

Natural aptitude plays a much larger role than actual seat time.

Otherwise we'd say that a 20 year only on a harley rider knows how to ride... Right?


You still cool bro
you have no idea.
