Another late intro

Hello everyone. This my third season riding the NYC area, but first season with an 05 C50. I owned a VLX600 as a first bike. Without a doubt the C 50 is a far more comfortable ride than the VLX. I have only done 1200 miles this season which included a run to Wildwood NJ for bike week, but I have high hopes for the 2013 season. I also want to thank all the members in advance for the knowledge and advice they provide.

morning and welcome from ct...gotta admire anyone willing to ride in the city...great training for a future paparazzi...hope to see you at one of our rallies here in the northeast. Ride safe and enjoy. Out of curiousity, having lived in the city for many years, wonder what its like parking bike on the street....used to get a kick out of watching people trying to parallel park and the way they used to go back into a space until they would hit the car behind them..their way of knowing they couldn't back up any more...ever happen to your bike.

Whats the big hurry...slow down and enjoy the ride!
