Things you wish you'd known when you were starting out on a bike, and things you're glad you did

Beaky Peaky

Worst thing I did when I started riding was buy a Haynes manual thinking it would show me everything......it didn't. Bought the

Clymer manual, much better.

Best thing I ever did was choose the bike over the wife, the feeling of freedom is worth it's weight in gold. LOL.

I wish I had known:

Trees, no matter how hard you try, don't move much when you hit them...

Things I wish I had done:

Not hit an oak tree on my first kx65 after coming on the powerband on the exit of a corner, jumping out of the burm flying about 10 feet then smack...

Apart from that I pretty much knew it all! :eusa_think:

Ah yes... I remember when I knew it all and old farts didn't have a clue. :yeah:

I've learned so much more since then :spin2:
