First bike when I was 31. 1984 FJ1100. This was 1985, I was married with two kids. I was thinking it was now or never.
I'm glad I started when I did, much earlier and I'm not sure I would have survived it.
Traded that in on a personal watercraft that my boys could play with. Didn't want them on bikes. Then went for about 12 years without a bike except for a utility quad.
2006 I bought Harley cause it was slow and I thought that would be good for me. Ended up spending 5k to make it faster.
2011 bought a ninja 1000 because it seemed like a comfortable sport bike. It was ok for 4 to 5 hours max for me then I wanted to get off. Just not comfortable enough.
2012 traded the ninja on a new Ducati multistrada 1200. This is THE bike!
Handling is unreal, speed, comfort. Just amazing. Longest time in saddle so far is 11 hours, I felt great. 59 now.
