Me too, I started riding again after a few yrs off. I have a 98 SE and will enjoy reading about all the G/Wing adventures. I may be one of the old guys [68] riding, but it's better than just laying on coach. I leave Sunday[weather permitting] for a 4 day trip to Texas hill country. Later

Goodyear

Never really thought of it, and yes the city was named for Goodyear Tire and Rubber. Long story about long-strand or long staple cotton used in tires back in WWI, but here i'm Everyone in my GWRRA Cahpter swears by the Bridgestone.

Its interesting to see so many 60 and above riders out there. 65 has been a standard retirement age from work.For many of us this is the begining of the fun years, we've worked hard for a lifetime to get what we have,maybe saved a few bucks, we can afford our toys and have the time to enjoy them. Our Grandchildren smile as we ride off on our bikes going wherever we want in North America and on our own time schedule.
I love this time of my life,we worked hard for it. I'm one of the "Old Guys" too Taco Bender :)

Woo Hoo, just got back with my new tires, slick but a nice ride, need another 60 miles on them to break them and and get the oil off. My D204's served me well, I'll keep the forum updated on how the Excedra's perform.

Welcome from Canada guys. I'm a few away from 60 yet too, but hoping that is the magic number to Government employment for me. Desertdog I have done quite a bit of riding in Az, and loved every bit of it; even if it was during my dark side days on the airhead v-twins instead of a wing. Ride safe:D

AZ Riding

After suffering thru our hot as hell summers, as you know we have some awesome riding down here. Thanks for all the welcome notes, BTW I love new new Bridgestone Excedras!!! Not putting down anyone's favorite, but i am very happy with the ride and cornering / holding the road with the Stones leaves you feeling very confident. :)
