Glad you finally got into the saddle...hope you have a great time riding. I would think you are going to see some beautiful country and have lots of great rides with all the mountainous terrain and winding roads.
Just a word of caution...remember a large number of accidents happen within the first year of riding...new riders. So, keep your head/heart in control, your eyes and attention focused like an eagle and be careful.
Looking forward to hearing/seeing more of what you are going to be seeing...yeah, a little jealous but, hey its always about the ride.
Great times to you!!!!
