Greetings. I'm 61, new to this forum and am looking for advice for a first motorcycle. I have been riding my Piaggio BV 350 scooter for several months and take it all over the place. But I have not ridden a regular bike outside of the MSF class (although I drive a manual-transmission car). Do you think this scooter experience counts for much? Most of the basic beginners' bikes have less power than my Piaggio, so I'm afraid I'll get bored immediately. I'm leery about buying a pricey bike and dropping it. I like standards (the Triumph Street Twin is my ideal), but most of the starter used bikes in my area are cruisers and obviously lack ABS. Any suggestions?
