Easy Steps To Becoming A Touring Motorcyclist

Quote:
Spring is here. The sun is slowly warming the earth and the snow is melting fast. It’s time to get your ride out of storage, tuned up and on the road, and grab some refresher lessons. Great riders never stop learning. But maybe you don’t have your license yet, and you’re not sure if this is the year you take the plunge. Maybe you’re content to sit on the sidelines and watch your friends head out on their bikes for heaps of adventure and thrill seeking, always putting it off until next season because…what’s the point? You can’t get your license and go on the epic trips with them in one season anyway – or can you?

Maybe this is the year you finally jump in. Because, the truth is, you can learn to ride and join your friends on those epic road trips all in the space of one season. With the proper training, some easy day trips, and maybe even a day or two on the dirt trails, you could even attempt an epic, multi-day road trip – all in the space of one short season.

Step 1. Buy big bulky motorcycle you'll never be able to pickup
Step 2. Skip the MSF course
Step 3. Accessories your bike to the point you may as well be in a cage
Step 4. Ride it everywhere, slowly. Impede traffic as much as possible, and certainly never wave a faster rider by.
Step 5. Collect t-shirts from every dealership. This shows you are a true rider.
Step 6. Wait 6 months, return your bike to the dealer bitching about drive-ability issues even though you are still on your first tank of gas. Give the dealer a bad rep when he charges you $400 for a carb service "on a brand new, 6mo old bike with 15 miles."

What am I missing here?

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

You forgot the dead battery from not installing the accessories to switched power and letting it sit in the garage without a tender

I think you also forgot about the "upgrading" to a "better" bike because this one just isn't working for you.

(This is actually how I got my 9er: doctor-newbe decided that the bike just wasn't working for him and bought a Duc.)
