at age 32 I bought an R60/7. No idea how to ride it. I wrecked it two days later and ended up in the hospital. After I got out, I bought a K1200RS, but didn't pick it up until I passed the MSF course.
That was my primary bike for several years, but during the last four years I bought and sold a R75/5, a K75s and a K75c. Last year I traded the RS in on a 1150GS, and then turned that into a 1150 Adventure, and I've never been happier. I love taking it off road, although I keep hurting myself, but I just finished the RawHyde training course, so I think I'll be spending less time in the ER from here on out.
I'm to the point that I am almost ready to get rid of my car.
