I just bought a motorcycle after 25 years of not riding. It's a 2007 Yamaha XV250 Virago. I looked at a lot of bikes, but nothing caught my eye. My last bike was a Honda 400 Hawk, that I used as a commuter bike in Iowa in the early 80's. I decided for my return to riding, that I didn't want a high dollar, high power bike and then decide I didn't like it. Although, I don't think that will be the case. I just want to start small. I left the dealer with an HJC CL14 helmet and just picked up a Motoboss Airspeed jacket today. I'll be heading to the local college football stadium parking lot for some practice and will be trying to get into the MSF course at Nellis AFB. I'm retired, so I can hopefully get in. I'm going to take it slow and get confident again before I take on Las Vegas traffic. I'm looking forward to riding again.
