Re: New Guy with Questions
Might I suggest an older, cheaper bike to start on. A friend bought an old mid-70's Honda 750 for $2000, rode it for a summer, sold it for the same $2000 and bought a bike that he really liked for off season prices.
Your first bike is unlikely to be your "keeper for life" bike. Somewhere down the road you will find one you love. Go to a BMW dealer and you can likely test ride a few bikes, if not that day, at least on their anniversary day sales. You can sometimes get test rides at bike shows, etc. Hit every dealer and sit on every bike. And if you ride in, even on an old beater, they might let you do some test rides.
Take your time, enjoy the journey. Start cheap and save your money for the future.
