Hey all. If I may, I'd like to introduce you all to what I'd like to introduce you all to what can be considered a new rider.



Charles, the recipient of that '87 VT1100 is slowly growing back into a rather large pair of shoes he left some 10 years ago. We've been getting him back up to speed over the last few days, initially on my Ninja, then slowly transitioned over to his heavier Shadow. He's catching on quickly, having already gotten the throttle/clutch nuances of his bike, rolling from a stop, and general slow speed maneuvering. And yep, he's been sportin an ear-to-ear grin as he putts around the parking lots that we're teaching him in. Yesterday, he finally got into second gear... as in literally. :biggrin: He has a way to go, but is well on track.

Anyhoo, I just wanted to share my excitement of getting my buddy back on the two-wheeled road. :)

Big Howdy, and Welcome from Texas. Glad things are going good. Couple of great smiles there in your picture. Only thing that will make those smiles better are some bugs in your teeth. ;)
