Re-Introduction ...

Thought I should drop in here, show respect to the new members since I last posted and introduce myself . . . and re-introduce me to the "old" Membership, I learned so much from those who have shared their knowledge, opinions and experiences with me! Thank you!

"Hi Y'all" - I hope you are all very well and making the most of the time we have been granted on this earth!!

My bike is a pretty little 2006 XL 1200 C (in Uncle Fester's favourite colours = Black & Chrome!). My first full year of owning a bike this year, man am I lucky! I work on the bike myself, did the 10,000 mile service, tuned the suspension, polished the discs, added new rubber, added some chrome, replaced a turn signal (ouch ... ... gotta skin your knee to learn how to walk!|) => learn learn learn! I have a healthy little list of things to do this winter - bring it on!

Me, father of three good kids 17, 19, 21 - have a great wife, still coming back from a house fire (new house is great BTW ...), commute a long way (rode the bike a few times this year! ), ride when I can, do chores and play guitar when I can't. Life is good but man is it goin' by fast ... makes ya think =

Looking forward to learning more and hopefully contributing more where I can!

Best wishes,
Rick.
