HAHA That's a good plan! I'm quite satisfied I waited until I was 26 to buy one. I took a job much closer to my house. Part of the motivation to take the job was to be at a reasonable distance to ride the bike in all the time. Also, to further insulate myself, I bought a slow bike. It can still go fast enough to kill me, mind you, but it's not fast. If you're looking for a reasonably priced, slow (enough) cruiser, check out an early-mid 2000's Honda Shadow 750. The V-Twin has plenty of torque for rural cruising, is JUST fast enough that you could go on the highway with relative safety (not for hours and hours - it has to work too hard), but not so fast that in one gear you'll find yourself flying. I really think it's a great starter bike. Also, if you're going to get a bike, go to the classes! It's THE BEST way to practice in a controlled environment and get your license for free (assuming your state's got a system similar to PA).
