The question is easy, what the hell I was thinking when i bought a bike?
After only 47 years i decided to fulfill, thanks also to my wife support, one of my wildest desire, buy a motorbike.
I’m the proud owner of a Kavasaki VN900, it’s a wonderful bike.
The only problem is that I never rided a motorbike, and i started to ride a bike just after i heve married Rika.
I konw it sound Nerd (well I am, indeed) but i have never had a bicicle or a scooter before. So I am a complete beginner.
That means I am not able to do a decent job with this wonderful toy, but I’m trying to learn.
Alas as every beginner that is over 45 I have some problems to show to the world my dumbness and so I’m trying to learn it when nobody watch me (you do not have the slightest idea how many people watch you when you do not want it). I admit it is a very hard job, my very first try was terrible, and with terrible I mean I was not able to move, then I’ve tried again a few (the “no people around” condition shorten the timeslots) but slowly I’m figuring out what I have to do.
And since I like to do things easy I choosed a 300kg big custom bike
Some stuffs are really unknown to me, for example: gear what the hell is this (ok ok there is something like that also on my car, but I do not need to use a foot to change speed), but I’m positivew at the end I will be able to ride it.
I will post my progress, and hope soon some trip
