Many people have not ridden a bicycle for 30 years, and I doubt they will have forgotten how. Main thing is have the bike fit and take it easy. My son told me many people need about 4500 miles under their belt before they are reasonably comfortable with a bike. Don't know what hat he pulled that number out of, but it is not a bad idea on the surface of it. I think he was talking of the notion that proportionally, many accidents occur on bikes with new or inexperienced riders and in the initial miles. Some riders can wrap around a pole on a moped, so try to use that squishy stuff between your ears, take your safety course and ride smart, and enjoy your Thunderbird.
