Back on two wheels!

Hi all! Indiana rider here just getting back on two wheels after about a 25 year absence. I used to ride in college and when I first got married, but I gave it up when we had kids because I wasn't comfortable with the risk.

All the kids are grown and moved out of the house, I decided it might be a good time to get back out there. I recently picked up a 2004 Volusia Intruder and am loving it so far. It's a great cruiser that I can take out on the weekends. Very comfortable.

Anyway, just thought I would join the forum to learn a bit about the ride as I do maintenance and possible upgrades.

Thanks for letting me in!

Greetings from another Hoosier. Your story is the same as many of us.

Please don't feed the monkey and beers in the fridge.

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

If you haven't yet, consider taking a rider training course to help knock the rust off of your survival skills.

I have not yet taken the course. I have done some off road riding through the down years, just never on the street. But many people have made the suggestion, so I just might register for one coming up here. Thanks for the welcomes! It's good to be here.
