Hello everyone (or only the few people who will actually read this)
This weekend there is a high chance that I will become the owner of my first motorcycle. I am 32 years old, so I think I might be mature and competent enough by now to learn. The bike will be a 2002 Suzuki Intruder 800. I am unsure if its a GS or LS or something else. I have only done a little bit of research on the different models, and still do not know what the different designations mean. I have only driven one motorcycle in my life and it was a 250 Ninja. That "ride" lasted all of thirty seconds because I upshifted too much and stalled it. Luckily for me there is a parking lot less than half a mile down the road from where I live, so I will be able to practice a bit before attempting to get my license. I am only attempting to do this bike thing because I know it makes economical sense for me. I am single and drive everywhere by myself for the most part. So if I can get +40mpg on a bike, why not? I will most likely just be on here lurking and searching stupid questions I come up with over the next couple weeks. If I can not find my answer, I will ask. Hope to learn some things, and potentially even meet some locals. I live in Kansas, and I see bikes everywhere, so surely some of them are members here.
