Re: Important Tips for New Riders
It takes a pretty good dude to want to share their most insane mistakes. That being said, I suspect it's a bit unusual to have quite that many of what I'd consider to be severe mistakes. I've known a couple of people and talked to many more who've sold theirs and/or refused to buy another for lack of self control. I bought my bike in my 30s, which was likely very beneficial. While I've always been an anticipatory and even defensive driver, I believe I have a lot more patience. Take NO shame in hanging up the keys for at least a few more years. Maturity makes the difference. Good luck AntD.
