You went from a Striker to a Vstar 1300? Did something happen to your Striker?

Curious why you switched bikes.

V star bikes are so reliable Im not sure you could call having one a hobby, you just put gas in the tank and ride it.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. Lots of us old farts on here. Motorcycles are certainly a lot more fun than the laptop, weather permitting. Post a pic of her when you get a chance!

Funny how some of the names for our pets can match their temperament. Sadie is very family oriented and she and my 9yr old granddaughter are best friends when she visits. Sheís an excellent watchdog and is very spoiled, lol.

My dog was named Meggs after "Ginger Meggs" a red headed newspaper cartoon character who had a strong leaning to getting into mischief and being cheeky .....
