I really don't remember learning. I've been a motorhead all my life. Rode bicycles when a kid because we had one car and it was at work all day. Learned to drive a tractor and car as soon as I could reach the pedals. We had a lake place, and that involved outboards and lawn mowers. I guess I started riding motor scooters when I was about 12, then motorcycles. Never have had any formal instruction, and when licensing came along, I was grandfathered in. I guess I've owned 30+ motorcycles and a similar number of cars and trucks.

Had to laugh when I bought the Ducati. When I picked it up, the whole damn dealership came outside to watch the old fart bust his ass. They were disappointed. My salesman chased me the two miles to my house to run me back so I could get my truck, and he said, "You ride pretty damn GOOD!" I told him that I was sorry I had to disappoint everyone.....
