Welcome to the 4M.

Old guys rule!

Really, they do, I even have a T-Shirt that proclaims this as fact!
Actually, it's mostly old rich white guys who rule... literally not figuratively. The kind who don't wear t-shirts...:eek:

BTW: welcome!

Welcome, I should say welcome back!
You rode before people had computers which wasnt all that long ago yet seems like forever.
Be safe, sounds like a nice ride, amazing, a lot of good bikes out there with low mileage.

Look at it this way: You might be an old guy, but you can take pride in your 'junior membership', and the fact that you're still working.

Great looking 'ride'.

low miles/still working

ya here in oregon its not hard to find a older bike with low miles.the summer is not long here and the nw. is known for its rain.so if your a fair weather rider your bike miles will stay low for many years.when i was young and dumb i road as long as it didnt ice up or snow.now i am old and stupid i told my wife i would get rain gear to ride in winter to save gas.like i said old and stupid.there is a place on I5 called terwiligar curves many accidents in good weather and many semi trucks tip over.people at work think i am crazy to ride there in bad weather its dangeras enough in a car.i think she took extra life insurance out on me.as my job ya i can say i have never been with out a job in my working carrier but the place i am at has gotten very bad the past 8 to 9 years.cant wait to get the ....... out.only thing i can look forward to is riding my bike to work and riding home.
its hard to believe its been thirty years before computers where in every house and now if you leave home without your cell or Ipad its a big crises.
i think that covers everyone SORRY if i tend to ramble my wife doesnt want to talk about what i like,bikes/hunting/target shooting.exc.
