I'm 52 (still) and I'm getting my license to ride after going through 3 days of Harley School. I don't want a mid-life-crisis Harley. Thanks. But I did want to get a dual purpose motorcycle - new, if possible - with a warranty! OMG!
So, for my first motorcycle, I chose to get a 2017 Kawasaki KLR650 this coming week and then I'm going to ride it around, get used to the clutch, gear shifting, and the throttle...then I am going to do some stuff. Not sure what exactly, but I plan on getting around - I plan to start doing day trips first and then overnighters.
I am mechanically inclined, so working on a carburetor shouldn't be so much of a problem, seeing that I used to work on 1970s carburetors on vehicles I owned back in the '80s all the way down to a briggs and stratton lawn mower engine LOL
I just need to have the right stuff in the tool bag - not too much, but enough.
I live in Montgomery County Tennessee.
