Riding a motorcycle

#1 Unread post by scooter12 » Tue May 14, 2013 9:42 pm

Now I have to be picky when is comes to choosing a full fledge motorcycle. I sat on a GS 250 sportsbike at the Honda Shop and I could not get my throttle hand to open up. It was the position of my body that was wrong. I rode a little 50cc motorbike in 1999. It had a clutch, hi low gear, and rear brake by right foot peg. Some bikes on the picture gallery are the right type of bikes I could ride. Trail bike style bikes are the type I can ride.
Right now, been enjoying a 250cc scooter. But might go up to a 400cc motorcycle. :cowboy:
I rode motorcycles growing up, but when age 16, I suffered a severe stroke. I had to gain balance and strength to ride again. Well at age 28, I bought a Yamaha Razz 50cc 2 stroke scooter. I started riding scooters, ever since then. But had riden a Chinese motorbike for 1 year in 1999. Certain style of bikes are easier on me to reach controls.
