Smile Back in the saddle

Hi Guys and Girls too. Ron here. Just signed up. Looking to get back on the machine. Was going to sell, no-one buying. After this long, decided to keep and through some money at it. I have a 2000 Road Star Silverado. I am very proud to say that this bike looks near new due to constant care and garaged all the time. Has just 24K and was running great till...... Am 57 years young and retired here in Florida. Was an ASE Certified Teck/ Shop Foreman/ Service Manager for a Multi-Brand Car Dealership. Have two kids, a house a pool and a dog too and a wfe who still loves me after 25 years. Not bad. Wish my bike was better. I have a question regarding loss of oil pressure which I will post later. In the meantime.....Enjoy the ride.

Ron

Welcome to the forum Ron. If you have questions this is the place for answers. We have many great brains and a ton of wild and crazy people. Take care and keep the rubber side down!

From one newbie to another...welcome.

And thanks to the title of this thread, Aerosmith's "Back in the Saddle" has been stuck in my head all afternoon. Thanks!

Yep, me too. Springer, however, will have the Gene Autry version going on in his head I'm sure.

Man O Man. We are/do have some long-in-the-tooth riders on this forum. As posted somewhere on here "Lots of old Goats here".

Naturally. Gene has the latest version. Every time he starts that slow drawl, I wonder how Dale felt about him being back in the saddle...
