New User. Newish Rider.

Hey, I'm new to the forum. Ive been riding a 2012 xvs 650 custom since January. Before that I'd ridden dirt bikes a bunch as a kid.
I don't usually fit in so great with other motorcycle folks. Different priorities, attitude, and ideas than your more typical rider. Hopefully you guys wont hate me too much.

"I don't usually fit in so great with other motorcycle folks."

motorcycle riders usually dont conform to the expectations of other people, so this makes you the rebel amongst rebels :^)

You got to be a little weird ride a motorcycle. I look up to people like Glenn Curtis (his museum is a nice afternoon ride from my house).

Google him, and then try to tell us you dont fit in.
