New here from Idaho

A few of you may know me from else where, but I thought I'd expand my horizons and join you fine folks here as well. My wife, Leslie and I have 2 kids and 2 Grandkids, and unfortunately lost our third and youngest daughter in a traffic accident in 2001 (that was a bad year all around). We live in the Rigby, Idaho, I was born and raised around the Yakima, Washington area, entered the Army in 1971, retired in 1992. Worked in the Wireless Cable and Broadband industry for 18 years, turned wrenches for Sears Automotive for 5, and finished it all up as an RV tech. Fully retired in March of this year. I ride a 2003 Goldwing 1800 named Black Beauty with just over 82,000 miles on the clock. Winter upgrades include a lowering kit, Progressive monotubes, a trailer hitch and trailer, and some new tires. My wife Leslie and I have taken a lengthy end of Summer trip for the last 2 years, this year covering parts of Wyoming, Montana, Washington, Oregon, and of course Idaho. Beartooth Pass, Yellowstone, Mt. Rainier, Crater Lake, and Leavenworth, Washington were some of the stops on the agenda, and amazing stops they were. Next years plans look to be pointing us more to the North and East, with Glacier, Mt. Rushmore, and Devils Tower on the list.

I'm a chatter box, so I'll apologize right now and get it over with. Thanks for having me, hope to see you on the road, ride safe and keep the shiny side up.

Thanks for the welcome, I'd love to ride with you guys. I still have family in the Yakima area that we go to visit, and friends in Spokane.
