mha Posted September 22, 2009 Report Share Posted September 22, 2009 Aloha All, I surf alot and in surfing a beginner newbie is called a Kook, Hodaddy, Gremmie and that's basically what I am. I figure gas will be $4.00 a gallon by next year (it's 3.27 @ gal. now). My daily commute to my office is about 6 miles one way or 12 miles all together and using my truck costs me about $100.00 a month and climbing. SO! I'm planing on getting a motorcycle to commute to and from my office. I'm going to take my beginner rider course this October and pickup a Kawasaki Ninja 250r. Yes I've looked around and did my homework and by far I've found this bike to fit me and my beginner status. It's one of the only bikes that I can actually straddle and have my feet planted on the ground I'm 5'-3" tall. Now that you've all stopped laughing, don't worry I'm used to it I'm seriously thinking of attending your school. I've always had a philosophy of learning and mastering a skill if I'm getting into it. I'm a former High School State Champion wrestler, Active Surfer, Avid spearfisher/Freediver, practiced martial arts most of my life, active High school wrestling coach, amature chef, never aquired a talent for musical insturments but god knows I've tried. So I'm thinking of attending your school while it's in Las Vegas since it's alot closer and travel expense and time will be cheaper. I'm 52 yrs. old, you know my height, my weight about 140 lbs. and in realitively good health. No heart problems, No high blood pressure, No diabetes or Hypertension. I surf almost everyday, and freedive on the weekends and practice and coach wrestling everyday while in season run 2-3 miles a day, don't smoke, no drugs, drink socialy only. My reason for attending your school would be to gain experience in control and confidence in riding. I feel that by going to this school and learning all the techniques it will make me a better street rider. I'm not supid to go racing on the freeway or city streets but feel that with these racing and extreem techniques it would help me be a better safer rider able to get out of situations and become more actively aware of my suroundings or potential hazardous situations ahead and around me. I'd like to eventually get to a point where I'm confident and have the nessecary skills to race on the track, not to compete but be competent to do so. This is the level I'd like to finally master and acquire do you all think this is a good idea or is my wife correct and blaming all this on a midlife crisis? Instructors please respond I'd like your opinion please, thanks, Muhaha Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
