Back in the saddle after twenty five years away! Twenty four in denial, one in planning and saving, and one long month waiting.

A special thanks to all who offered advice to me. To Rog from from across the pond, thanks for let me share some old adventures and memories cruising around England on my old Norton..... back when.

I look forward to being a part of this community. Maybe even meet some of you sometime.

Put 50 miles on her yesterday afternoon. I found it very hard to keep the revs down for break-in. After I post this I'm going for a short lunch ride. I will be wearing a helmet. I purchase one of the modular helmets which I like a lot.

After the first 50 miles


The next morning
