New Rider - Las Vegas, NV

Hey everyone - I'm a "late bloomer" - 41 and just got my endorsement. Bought an '02 Shadow ACE, which I'm really excited about. Good to meet you all!

Welcome to the club -- of late bloomers as well as riders. You'll find there are a lot of people on this forum that started later in life. I was 45 when I got my endorsement this year and bought my first bike (since I was a kid, anyway). There's even a thread on here pertaining to that very topic. So, ride safe and have fun!

Thanks Bryan. A lot of people warned me about learning to ride in Vegas, so I'm pretty conservative when I ride (which has been a sum total of about 5 hours so far). The bike I just bought now won't start - so I get to learn about the OTHER half of owning a motorcycle now.

Thanks GhostRider. Have you always lived and/or ridden here? Do you think it's any more dangerous here than in other cities?

I'm new to the forum and new to Vegas. Apart from that it's been a long time since I was new to anything. Good to see there are some locals here.

PS The bike I just bought has a crankcase guide plug leak. I feel your pain about the "other" half of owning a bike.
