I have changed my former user name, "ctspartan", to "scspartan" due to a recent move to Conway, South Carolina. Thank you Misinlink for making the change.

My name is Don and I ride an '02 FLHRCI. Got back into riding after 35+ yrs, when I bought the Road King 4 yrs ago. I am originally from Michigan and have a bachelors degree from Michigan State Univ. in '73. Upon graduation four of my friends and I rode through many of the Rocky Mtn states, we all had Hondas. Most of them had CB750"s, I had a CB500. Loved that bike, but looking back I wonder how the heck I rode it for so many miles on the stock seat it had. Maybe cause I was much younger n crazier.:D

Shortly after getting back from that western ride I moved east, first to Massachusetts, then CT where I met my wife, then Long Island, and back to CT. Wife and I have been married 38 years, 28 of which were in the in Bristol, CT house. Lot of great memories there raising a great son and beautiful daughter. Thought the move would be easy peasy, not so. Leaving behind some great friends n all those home attachments. But, last winter was the deciding factor, it was so damn cold and snowy. First thing I sold a couple months ago was the snow thrower. LOl

Nuf babbling. Its great to be here with Y'all. Some very smart and funny people on here that someday I would really like to meet. Thank you all very much for putting up with me over the past few years, its been a pleasure being here. Don

This is not a joke. To many make their way down and after a few days/years forget why and start to tell us how awesome it was UP Home. Makes me wanna send them back.

Congrats! On the move, the Carolinas are awesome. Great mountain riding and love the Outer Banks, in NC. If you head back north through the dismal swamp be careful, there's bugs in there that can put a serious hurt on a person.

Congratulations on making your way south. Conway is a beautiful town with some great historical architecture. I love driving through there on my way to Myrtle Beach. No doubt that the weather will be much more tolerable for you unless you have any paranoia about hurricanes.
Welcome back to the Forum from Oklahoma; scspartan. Love that state of South Carolina! You already know the good caliber of people that reside here.
Hey, CT, I mean SC... Hope you enjoy the new location.
