As I have said, it has been 41 years since I have been on a motorcycle. And that is a long time. In addition, the last bike I rode was a small sporty chopper. A Honda CB 750 chopper with extended forks and lowered seat. I will be riding a bike that is almost half again larger and way, WAY more powerful.
Today I picked up a riding jacket, gloves and helmet. Went full face for the helmet and got a good one from Harley Davidson. The jacket should protect me if I go down on the machine, and the gloves have leather palms and fingers. They are also equipped with a pad for using a phone touch screen.
There is a lot of stuff to learn, and I am taking my time to make sure I am ready to go, and ready to be safe.
Apparently I read the signup incorrectly. Classes start Monday.
Long weekend without my scooter… dang.
