I’ve only had my motorcycle license for about a month. I've ridden the DRZ around town a good bit since I got it, but I finally took it out on the freeway this past Sunday and it was not a fun experience. In fact it was so jarring that I'm not sure if I even want to try that again. Though, it was unusually windy that day. On another note, I've also been quickly realizing how limited the opportunities for off road riding are in the SF Bay Area. Bascially, I'm kinda wondering if I should have gotten a DR650 or something else, though after scouring Craiglist for months I never saw one in my price range or one that was and was on the market for more than 2 hours. But I also wonder if I would have been just as freaked out by the very strong winds on Sunday no matter what bike I'd been on.
