I don't think it gets more newb than me: I don't have a bike yet and have never rode one. But I've been itchin too for a while and (despite my wife's probably-justified concerns) am finally signing up to take a proper course and get licensed. In the meantime, I'm just here reading as many threads as I can & learning as much as possible. This site is great - its more than just learning how to ride, but learning which bike is right for you which is why I signed up. The only thing I know for sure is that when I do finally get my bike, it's gonna be a Harley. God Bless America.
