The idea of riding a motorcycle intrigued me for a few years. In 2016 I finally took the steps to learning how to ride. After taking a motorcycle course I quickly got my license and didn't wait long to find my first bike. Draining my savings I took the plunge on a budget cruiser, a Honda Shadow Phantom. Three years and eighteen thousand miles later I reflect back on this being one of the most positive investments I could have made. Motorcycling has brought me adventure and peace, what more could you want from a hobby.
