Congrats!  My son actually got me back into riding about 5 years ago after a long hiatus.  After he got his license I went bike shopping with him.  He took me to an odd dealer that sold these odd Italian motorcycles.  He bought something else but I ended up with a brand new V7III.   
Sadly he has not been in the saddle much recently after coming upon a fatal MC accident.  Hope to rectify that this spring...

Thanks!  Oil is changed, chain is lubed, and battery is charged so hope to get him out again soon...

Life is full of risks.  You just have to manage it.  Hope he comes around.  If he stumbles upon a fatal car accident would he stop driving?

There is a lot of training out there. Even BMW has a street survival class now. The best thing I ever did is the training class's.
