I had no idea what I was in for and we’re going to spend June 2016 looking back at my first steps into motorcycling 10 years ago.
Starting with this:
Enthusiasm, I had plenty of it. Despite lowsiding my wife’s bike a few months before, and not even having taken the MSF I bought myself a motorcycle 10 years ago today. Not just any motorcycle, I bought Ducati, a RED one.
It sounds insane, and while it was a little insane I wouldn’t go back in time and tell myself no. I did check with my motorcycle riding friends on what it cost, and no one told me run, and for a starting motorcycle 60hp and a low seat are not bad things to have.
The fact remains though that I couldn’t even ride it legally yet.
