So I got my motorcycle license on September 1st and I've been riding the small family motorcycle for about a month now.
It's a little 2007 Kawasaki 250 Ninja and while it's great, it triggers my carpal tunnel because of the positioning of the handle bars.

Today after taking the Ninja out, with my dad on his bike, I went and tried taking my brothers bike for a ride.
His motorcycle is a 2004 Honda VTX 1300R. To put it into perspective, his bike makes the ninja look like a toy.
The VTX is a large and heavy cruiser style bike with the handle bars out wide.

As a newer rider, the VTX was intimidating because of its size. But when I took it out, man. It was amazing! It has so much more power and is easy to maneuver. The entire ride I felt that pure enjoyment and de-stress feeling. I didn't feel any worry and my wrists weren't strained at all.
Motorcycle riding is a dangerous activity but it really helps me and other people de-stress.
I always wear all my gear all the time and ride as if I am invisible.
We go as a group as well to improve visibility to other cars.
