I've been out of riding for quite some time (like 30 years) but decided to get back into riding for the pure enjoyment I remembered from riding before. I rode quite a bit in HS and college, but when kids came, the bike went. So, at 58 years old I bought an 01 Vulcan 800 Classic, passed my skills test and am now sitting here watching it snow. Talk about an exercise in poor timing, I had a chance to ride for about a month before it got too cold. Anyhow I'm looking forward to the return of warm weather, getting back in the saddle, enjoying the thrill of riding again, and getting to know some other riders. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
