2. What was your first bike?

3. How do you feel about starting so late?

4. What bikes have you progressed to / thru?

I'll go first.

Not sure why you started with 2.... But

2. I bought a 2002 VRod via Ebay after I saw the bike at a Harley dealership.

3. I am glad I waited! Having the time to develop patience has made it so that I can enjoy riding and not dying (really dying) to be the fastest. Understanding mortality seriously helps.

4. I put 15K on the VRod in a year and at about 10 months in I bought an ST1300. I finally had enough bar runs so I sold the VRod and bought a Ulysses. So that's the two in the garage, a ST and a Uly.
