I haven't got one. I park it in gear sometimes and not on other occasions.
"I was riding on a 500cc Triumph. I hadn't had it more than two months. I bought it off a farmer. One of his sons had come to grief on it.
"I just tuned it up and put a new rear tyre on it. I thought the front tyre would be okay but it wasn't. It bust."
He was thrown into the road and his coma was such that doctors concluded that he had died. So they gave the order for the body to be taken away.
Well actually, I plan to buy a used Bonneville or a Thruxton as my first bike. I'm not looking to go especially fast or have anything especially powerful and I think these two would be very good for a beginner rider. The 250s are nice, but I am not a rich man, and I don't want to buy a bike and then 6 months later, I am in the market for a new bike because the 250 doesn't have the necessary power to do what I want and go where I want. I would rather buy what I want once, and just take my time and practice on it. Most of the folks on here seem to think that the Bonnie is a good "first bike" choice as well.
Were I to do it all over again, I would have:
- considered a dual-sport and/or done some trail riding
