I bought my first motorcycle in July of 2017. It was a 1997 Dr650 with 19k miles on it and a rats nest in the airbox. I had never worked on motorcycles before this (however I used to be a bicycle mechanic and have some small engine experience) so this has been a learning process. I'm riding year round and loving it.
This bike was very neglected when I bought it. It ran (how, I honestly don't know) but obviously was in need of some love. I didn't know what a rabbit hole I was about to go down, but it's been a fun one and I'm learning a lot.
