Have been reading the forum for a few weeks, and enjoy it, decided to join in. As a boomer, it does me good to be called a "junior" member! Been riding since a kid, first new bike was a Honda CB200 in the 70's, really enjoyed it. Then came job and family responsibilites, no bike, no riding for 30 years, until 5 years ago, bought a used 125 Honda, then a used 750 Honda, and wound up with a new HD softail Delux in '06. Rode it from coast to coast, & Gulf to Superior, but it spent lots of time in HD shops. In an Oregon shop for a week. Traded it for a new '09 Ultra, nice, but very noisy 5th gear, it became a real irritation on 2 lane roads, my riding preference. Two months ago traded it for an '08 GW1800 w/4700 miles, and all the goodies incl CB, nav, etc etc. Have put another 5000 miles on it, and believe I have gotten to where I want to be. Enjoy wing and the forum, thax for reading.
