2. What was your first bike?
3. How do you feel about starting so late?
4. What bikes have you progressed to / thru?
xr400, bought when I was 34.
Best investment I've ever made in my mental and physical health. Regret that I did not buy a bike sooner. Broke my shoulder within the first 3 months and learned a valuable lesson about riding within my limits.
Still love XRs, but now own a KTM 400exc with 5,000 miles and a KTM 200exc (have a love/hate relationship with the 200).
