What do I wish I had known when I picked up my first bike??
For me it was a problem that I got too much bike for my abilities being a new rider. Never had a bike when I was a kid although rode a few. I was in my early 40"s when I got my first bike, a 1000cc Honda CBX. Way too much bike for me at the time. I was usually scared driving that thing. In hindsight should have started out much smaller.
