Cool Retired & Riding Again

I retired from the USCG in 1997 and recently retired from teaching here in a Texas. Many years ago I had a few bikes and rode quite a bit. Raising a family, moving with the military, and life interjected itself. However, when I retired the summer, I wanted to ride again so I took a new rider course at the local HD dealership. After 20+ years since I last road a bike, I wanted to refresh my skills (or was it remember). Anyway, I fell in love with it again and bought a 2010 Road King. After almost daily riding, I checked my odometer and have logged almost 700 miles in just over a month.
