Hi, I just bought my first Harley, Street 750 today. Drove about 40km today. I sold my first (and only bike I owned), a Yezdi in 1995. Not driven a bike since then. So I do feel a little jittery while driving, now in my mid-fifties!!

Welcome to the forums, Sinhanind! It seems like there are quite a few of us here who have either gotten into motorcycles a little late in life or are returning after taking time away from life on two wheels.


Ride however you feel comfortable until your confidence improves and you should be OK. Try and push your limits a bit on each ride and pretty soon you will be comfortable in the saddle again.


Have you looked into any kind of new rider or returning rider training in your area?

No, in this corner of India, there are no such training facilities. The major issue I find is getting used to the weight-228kg
