Hello everyone. I'm pretty new to riding but not completely new to motorcycles. I grew up around car and motorcycle racers (I chose cars lol) but never had a desire to ride until now. I'm actually get a 98 VFR from my step father soon so I'm glad I found this site to get started with my research. The bike hasn't been on the road much in the last few years because he lives out of state and stores the bike here. I know up front it will need an oil change, tires, and maybe battery. Obviously I wont be riding until I determine its condition, but is there anything specific to this bike or motorcycles in general that I should look for to determine if there are issues. I'm pretty mechanically inclined so I plan to do most things myself unless I feel completely out of my element.
