Hello everyone!
I'm from the center of the Appalachian mountain chain currently living in a little town called Wise, Va. with my wife Kim and son Alex. I'm 52 right now and been riding since I was 12 years old. My first scoot was a little yellow Yamaha 80 complete with street legal lights and everything else. I loved it and never stopped riding both dirt and street. the day I got my drivers license at 16 I turned right around marched back into the courthouse and turned those in so I could get my motorcycle license.
I've owned a lot of bikes in my life and in 1990 got my first ever Harley which I still own, a basic black sportser, and I've also got a 2005 Softtail Deluxe which my wife allowed me to buy as a graduation gift when I got out of University of Louisville's graduate program in technical theater and production.
I'm more than happy to speak with anyone about rides around these mountains as well as hook you up with some buds I've been out west with. Regularly did the run to the wall in DC, Boozy Creek in Kingsport, tn, Cherokee, in the Carolinas, and Chilicothie in Ohio for many years although i'm slacking off a little more these days because of my work schedule. just holler at me!
right now i'm going to try head over to the battery thread I saw cause i'm wondering about this original softtail battery which is still going strong...:)

Welcome from Central Florida. My brother used to ride Hwy 16 and up that way and he loved it. I have a Softail Custom and I only get about two years out of a battery down here.
