Hello from West Yorkshire

Hi folks. Iím in Huddersfield West Yorkshire. Not a young rider Iím 53 years young. but one returning to riding after many years. 250cc was learned bikes when I last rode. So never got around to passing test.
Passed my CB T and theory but just failed my mod 1. Clipped a cone on the avoidance test. Saw it fall over in my mirror. No faults up to then. Was gutted.
Was looking around on what bike to get when I do pass. Sat on a few at dealers recently. Honda Rebel 500 just felt right and part of me. So now got to pass and order one. I do a commute of around 20miles to work. About 10 of that is motorway (in car at moment) it will be on bike eventually. Canít wait to get out and ride one.
Ps I have a Yamaha ybr 125 custom at moment.
