Congratulations and welcome aboard!
+1 on what others have said about an MSF course or equivalent. I rode very little in my youth, only a couple of times, really, and managed to crash my friends Trail 70 in a field at that. I had originally thought to take the MSF course, buy a 250cc Reflex scooter, and immediately head out on a couple of hundred mile trip to visit my parents. The MSF course made me realize that wasn't going to happen. I spent a couple years (and a terrifying first few weeks) on a Honda CB450 before moving up to my most wonderful Wee. Oh, got the 250cc scooter last year and love it, too.
