I had not been on a motorcycle in 27 years when I first started just lurking here, reading ride reports, riding vicariously through others. Lurked for a year, soaking up the knowledge. Kept my eye out for a bike I could afford. Finally found one a year ago, 1994 klr250 for 875.00. Perfect bike for me to learn all the crap I was lucky didn't kill me when I was 12. Cheap enough that it didn't hurt when I dropped it. If I hadn't had this ADVRIDER addiction I probably wouldn't have ever gotten around to getting back on a bike. Thank You Baldy for this awesome forum.
