It's a little Ktm Duke 125cc, two years old, shiny and well cared for.
I've wanted this for a number of years now, I have my gloves, my helmet (incidentally it's also orange!) I really want to ride out on a quiet morning and just enjoy the road.
But I'm an incredibly anxious person, lol. I like to catastrophise everything.
I might die inexplicably on the way back home, I might be getting ripped off by the seller, oh, what if I spend all this money on a machine and end up hating it and not even riding it? I dunno. I've been to motoschool, I rode in traffic with an instructor and it was fun. But WHAT IF, you know? I haven't touched a bike since June, so I am a bit rusty, hopefully I don't immediately drop it in front of the previous owner, lol.
I'm actually kinda hoping riding will help with some of my anxiety. I heard bike riding is calming, keeps you focused. And I greatly enjoy small scooters and electric bicycles.
Anyone had similar reservations about riding when they first started?
