Well I am 21 yrs old, I have been riding for about 2 years now. I got into riding because of my dad. He bought him a bike last July and started riding again n i said i wanna learn he said ok so i started to look for a bike. I found an old dirt bike i bought for $800 rode it once and then had problems with it. He sacrificed his new bike for me to learn on til i was able to find another bike. I found one about a month later (an '86 Kawasaki hunk of metal lol) and rode that a lil here n there to learn on. I went down about a month after i got my permit and took the driving test on my dads bike and missed only one section. After that i sold that bike cause it started having some problems with it and was able to find a nice '94 Yamaha Seca II that i was able to afford, drove all the way to Breckenridge, CO. from Pueblo, CO. and rode it back. I had that bike for about a year and decided it was time to upgrade. I sold that bike and found my current bike that I love, a '97 Suzuki Bandit 1200. I love my new bike, its fast, sporty, reliable and great for everything whether its just cruising to college, heading to my friends or going on a long ride with my lil bro and my mom and dad.
