I started out riding my buddies TW200 around parking lots and in the grass. I was hooked and wanted a TW200 for myself. So I bought one and rode it the first time on private property on some muddy trails. I then got my learners permit. I took a short ride on the road and then a week later I took a 60 mile ride on the road. I then took the Team Oregon class and got my endorsement. After that I just keep learning by experience.
