I had wanted to ride a long time before, just never got around to it. Hanging out with friends who rode got me interested again and one sold me an old beat up Honda GL500 for next to nothing. I put about 50 miles on it then signed up for an MSF class and got a Honda Spirit 750 shortly after. Put 10k on it in a year but made the mistake of riding with a GS rider for a few hundred miles. Sold the Honda & got an 1150 GS and put 24k on it in the last 16 months.
