Just Started (Kinda)
I rode for 2 years on a temporary permit when I was 17-19 on a beautiful blue 1973 Yamaha RD250. I was restricted to country roads by my permit, but that never bothered me a bit. Never got my license until I was 31.
I think it is great to have started again in my early thirties, because if I rode in my twenties I'm fairly certain I would have killed myself.
My first bike now that I am back riding is a KLR 250.
