New guy with a strat

Gust want to say hi, I've Benn on Yamaha's since 72 with my first street bike a RD 350, Ive had other bikes but my favorite bikes were my V-STAR 1100 Classic that I had from05-09, and my 2007 Stratoliner Midnight I bought new in 09. In 2012 I found out I had lung and bone cancer, 35 radiation treatments and 3 years of chemo later I was in remission but the damage took me off two weeks for life.😠 however you can't keep a old sub sailor down so in 2014 I bought a Texas side car and I'm still in the wind. Any riders in north Ga, let me know and we will get together and ride, we have some of the best riding here!

welcome to the forum, Mike. Good to hear you're back in the saddle. That's a major obstacle and sounds like you overcame in style!
