Motorcycle riding

While still at school I became crazy about motorcycles. In Ukraine we can get driver’s license at 16. I was getting ready to get one and to buy a motorcycle. Actually as a schoolboy the huber of motorcycles available at that time in Ukraine for a student with a small budget was limited. My ultimate dream was 125cm3 Minsk from Belarus.

My friend had a far better option – 350cm3 Jawa

I had some savings and was about to spend them on Minsk as Jawa was expensive and the supply was limited. But something changed in my plans and I postponed the idea to buy a motorcycle until now.

Imagine my surprise when I googled Minsk and found these motorcycles

But even more changes happened in my life – my wife Hanna became obsessed with motorcycles. She was the first one to go and the the motorcycle driving license. So, she is the first mover in our family and I am a fast follower. In December 2013 when Hanna had a birthday I decide to give her a good memorable present – KTM Duke 390

This is an awesome motorcycle. We have tons of enjoyment riding it in the streets of Kiev. This year we have early spring and we are lucky to spend some evening every week riding this magnificent KTM Duke. I highly recommend KTM as a motorcycle brand.
