Morning folks, looking for advice. I feel the answer to this will go very much one way or the other. I've always loved the '06 Repsol Blade. I am now able to buy one as a third vehicle, so it will only be used on nice days, but here's the rub. The last time I rode a bike it was 25 years ago and I don't even have a bike licence yet. Doing a 5 day course next month. Am I being stupid thinking I could use a blade as a first proper bike? I'm old enough to know my limits and am certainly past the boy racer stage. I have to be honest it will be the Repsol Blade or nothing and I doubt I'd bother getting a smaller machine as its a Blade I want rather than 'a motorbike'. I guess I'm just asking if I ride sensibly can the Blade make a usable first bike? Many thanks for any input and hopefully there wont be too many 'Are you fecking nuts?' replies!! Reg.
