I've been lurking here for a while and this seems to be a friendly gathering place. The technical discussions are always good with knowledgeable people willing to share tips and experience. I rode when I was young, got married and did the responsible stuff which included no more motorcycle. Now that the kids are all on their own I got back into motorcycles last year and after 32 years absence had forgotten what a load of fun it is. Ma says I'm a 57 year old teenager again even though I can hardly leave the driveway without her on the back. She even buys chrome and toys for the bike. Great woman, isn't she? I ride a 2004 Shadow Aero. If the weather stays sunny for a few more days maybe I'll get it outside and take a picture to post.
