My name is Michael. I started riding in the summer of 2006. My first motorcycle was a Tank 50cc mini Chopper. It was good enough to acquire a Motorcycle license and not much else. Sold it three months later for a bigger and better ride. Second Motorcycle was a Suzuki GZ250. Bigger, faster, a little more power, but still not something I would take on the freeway. Totaled in January 2007 when some idiot made a left turn without looking because they were talking on their damn cellphone, resulting in a broken femur, tibia and fibula. Got a little bit of money, but I'd rather still have two good legs. I took a break from riding for a few years til I got that itch again. In august of 2011 I decided to jump back on. Right now I am riding a retro 150cc scooter and putting the money I save aside for a KLR. I spend $100 less a month when I leave the SUV at home. I should be hopping on a brand new KLR by this summer. I find that I am a more cautious rider since the accident and now have the mindset that there are a lot if idiots on the road, so I best assume everybody is. I stay in the center lane and flash my brights when coming across anybody getting ready to turn.
