Hello from the ATX - Post #2
OK, a little more info.
I've been riding just over a year. Not sure what took so long, as I love riding, but maybe it took a midlife crisis sort of thing to go take a class and buy a bike. Or it could have been the fact that my lovely bride of 15 years took the course first and bought a scooter, and she couldn't be the only one in the family with a class 'M' license.
Anyhow, aced the test, bought a 2013 Honda Shadow Phantom for my first bike. At just shy of 6 feet, and now comfortable riding, the Phantom feels a might small for me. Add to that the Phantom is at that sweet spot as having low enough mileage value to help me with the down on my next bike.
I was fairly active over at HondaShadow.net and this forum feels similar. Hope to gain some good Victory info here as I did over there.
