old guy who's a noob
Hey all - I go by John(the)Greybeard mostly. I'm F'ing ancient according to what my kids, grandkids and joints and bones tell me... but somehow, inside, I still feel like that 20 year old on the orange (seriously?) trumpet chopper.... as in I haven't stopped grinning like an idiot since last Saturday when I FINALLY nabbed my new 2005 Sabre 1100. Wooo Hooooo!!! My angel of a wife has been rolling her eyes for years every time I fell over in a swoon upon hearing some rolling thunder pass by - but now I'm finally riding again. Put 50 miles of rolling Southeast Pennsylvania country road under the Flamer's wheels on Sunday before putting her up for a new-owner, all synthetic oil change.
Which in all honesty is about the level of my mechanical/technical ability. Not good for a rider, I know... but thats why I got me a Honda, right?
But as ancient as I admit to being, I'm way not to old to learn, so I'll be leaning on all your experience, wisdom and insight as I roll on. Thanks for bringing me in!
