Had an 82 Yamaha seca 650 turbo.

I mean who sells a turbo motorcycle to a 17 YO?

Anywhoos, after some very fast speed wobbles while trying to change lanes going way too fast, I sold the bike a week later. Scared outta my mind. Not afraid to admit it. I knew I was going to die on it.
Havent rode a motorcycle since.

I do like the Iron Horse. That's my kinda bike.
I would never own or ride a bike for fear of my life.

Cruisers are a pretty relaxing ride.  My Yamaha 750 was fast.  The other bikes, not so much.

I did a movie about 20-some years ago.  One of the prerequisites to getting cast was knowing how to ride a motorcycle.  I told them I knew how.  (I didn't.)  I learned how (sorta) during the course of filming and had a blast doing so.  Once we wrapped the film, I bought my first bike.  I've had one bad smash-up (and still have the scars), and a coupla other lay-downs, but it's still the best fun to be had.

Love the Kawasaki but it can get hairy here in Chicago. I would say at least 70 percent are on the phone doing whatever. I've had 2 different HDs, 2 sport bikes and my new girl here, sport/touring.
