Hey there, Hi there, Ho there

I am a 60 year old retiree who had a wild hair a month ago to get another bike after a 35 year hiatus. Bought a 2004 V Star 1100 Classic and have been having a ball in between the darn raindrops here in western new york state. I just found this forum today and a quick perusal showed a few other members here in the area. Do you folks ever get together for a little ride now and again??

Welcome to the forum Tonawanda. As the MadPoet will tell you we are a bunch of wild and crazy folks. We also have some very smart folks that can help with pretty much any problem.

Welcome! You picked a nice ride. It does the heart of Sugar Bear good to see seasoned citizens get back in the game Ride safe.

Ride Safe, Live Long
