Welcome to the forum. Don't be shy to post often and post some pics of your ride(s).
Go to the regional discussions and add up your name to the Canada gang .

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Welcome. CONGRATS on your retirement! Now is the time, this phase of life, to have fun, ride all you can stand. Old? No, not at all, just well seasoned The stress is behind you now, you earned it.

Have fun, enjoy life.

Ride Safe, Live Long

Thanks for the welcome guys. I'll try to post some pics today. Strange thing about this retirement thing. I'm startin' to feel younger as the days go by. Its only been a couple of weeks and still trying to realize I don't have to go back(ever).lol. 3 days short of 36 years is a long time, been there since I was 18. I figure if I live to 150, thats 95 years of pension. Gotta aim high.................

Welcome to the forum. I have six more months and I'll join you in retirement. Work is really starting to annoy me. All I can say is enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.

Thanks for the welcome

6 months will fly by......no it won't lol. When I had about 6 months to go, a buddy who had 1 week to go told me, "The weeks fly by, but the days take forever." He was right. I hated the last couple months, but then it was done. Still feel like I'm on holidays, except I have no excuse for not doing housework while she's at work.lol. It will be here before ya know it. Thanks again............
