I actually started riding a bicycle to work 4 1/2 yrs ago. I soon realized my knees weren't up to the task, so we bought a 50 cc scooter. Hubby then decided he wanted a 250 cc bike to relearn on because it had been 20 yrs since he'd had a bike. He rode the 250 for 6 weeks and decided he was ready for an 800 cc bike. Soooo, I thought, what the heck, lets give the 250 a try. I took the 250 over, we sold the scooter. Less than a year later we decided that the 250 couldn't keep up, and hubby wanted an 1800 cc, so we traded the 250 in, he got his 1800, I took his 800. Then 3 months ago we decided the 800 wasn't big enough for me, so I traded her in on my stryker. It's really funny though because I had always been terrified of motorcycles and never had any interest in them. We've had much needed rain for the last week and I'm in withdrawal because I haven't been able to ride at all for a week. I told him at supper tonight I'm riding next week come rain, sleet, hail or snow.
