At the age of 41 i've decided that it's time to get my motorcycle license. I've driven a 50cc bike when i was 16-19, and i feel my muscle memory is still present. So it shouldn't be too much of a problem getting the hang of it again.
I intend to drive for pleasure and commuting. One way is about 50kms(30miles) including 30kms(20miles) freeway. But only when the weather's good.
I've have set my eyes on a Bonneville. For it's looks and forgiving torque curve.
I have quite a few friends who are into motorcycles. And i've asked there opinions on the Bonneville for me as a beginner. And gotten following remarks:
- No ABS
- Too heavy for a beginner
- Naked bikes are not a good idea for the freeway
I would like to get opinions from Bonneville riders, who can tell first hand if these remarks are valid or not.
