Want to say Hi to all!

Although not new to riding or Yamaha, I am new to this Forum.

I'm a 55 year old kid who loves playing with my 09 Raider. I believe it to be the finest bike I've ever owned. I love the performance and the way it handles. I have owned extreme opposites, such as a 2005Venture, and a 2006 FJR AE. The Raider kind of fits into the middle of things. And boy does it do that well!

After reading some of the posts written by others I know I can still learn a lot here. Personally I never quit learning, and have found Forums of all kinds a wealth of knowledge, as well as speaking to others who have the same for the love for riding as myself.

Welcome!

The first thing you can learn is that you needn't have parted with your hard-earned dollars to post anywhere in the forum (except the VIP forum)

But you can take pride in being a member of an elite (very elite) group (I think there are 3 Premium members of late. Perhaps you can all create a secret handshake or something?

So from whence comest thou?

I know sometimes the people who run these Forums make nothing for their time and trouble. I figured I'd try to help in some small way?
:^)

Thanks for the Welcome and trying to watch out for me. I do appreciate it!

Welcome to the forum! Yes there are plenty to learn around active forums and being able to help out a fellow enthusiast is also as rewarding. Many miles of smiles aboard your Raider.

Hi SparkyD,

I live on a submarine, so it's in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean....

No actually that was my poor attempt at being funny! On the serious side of things. I've seen where a certain number of States that are located close to the Atlantic Ocean the Mid Atlantic Region.

These States consist of NY, PA, NJ, DE, WV, VA, DC, MD. I am located in the State of Maryland (State of confusion is more like it)

I can see where it is confusing to someone who's not heard of this before. And I see even if you've heard of the Mid Atlantic Region, the way I wrote it would confuse anyone.

I may have to change the way I wrote it?

Be Safe......
