New Members from N. Virginia

Hello from N. Virginia. We are a military family nearing retirement and have gotten back into riding after many years away from it. My wife rides a "new" 2000 Sportster 883 in Aztec Red. We put progressive shocks and a low profile corbin seat on it to give her better reach. I am on a 2008 black and orange (HD colors) dyna low rider. I haven't done anything fancier than changing out pegs and grips, but I can feel the pull of the 'mod beast,' especially as I face the prospect of fewer riding days over the winter. We look forward to learning more on the forum and perhaps finding out about bike events in our area. I will include some shots of our rides in a future post.

Welcome to the forum David and thank you for your service. Congrats also as you near retirement. I'm a couple years out from retirement myself and I find myself thinking more about it all the time.
