Customary introduction

Hello. I'm Silas. I'm a long time motorcycle enthusiast. The obsession started 35 years ago when my Dad took me for a ride on a 70s goldwing through the Rocky mountains. For the past 20 or so years I've been riding old rigid choppers. Last year my loving wife sat me down and told me it was time to get something with suspension; because she loved riding with me but was tired of her back and ass hurting. I of course scoffed and told her I would never ride a chromed out road couch..... Which brings me to now, we just purchased an 06 Suzuki c50, with all sorts of chrome, cushy seats, a windshield, etc.
The bike had a whopping 2300 miles on it, never spent a night outside, had new tires, new battery and a new wiring harness, all freshly done at a dealership. Apparently the owner bought it for himself and his wife wanted it, so he bought a Soft tail, she rode it a few times and it sat in the garage. They're getting a divorce so we got a deal $2600.

**Insert a picture of a famous person here, with a quote they never said**

Greetings from Indiana.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
