Thumbs up "I'm back" Old/new member

Been gone 10 years after selling my wife's and my bikes (Volusia 800 Intruder and Vulcan 1500 Classic). Got back into motorcycling last week after purchasing a Boulevard S40 (I know, I know, it's not a motorcycle by some people's standards). Hoping to have fun again on the forum. I had to register with a new account because my last one used a different e-mail address.

Anyway, my old username was Maniac. I had several good friends years back, but time has made me forget their names and usernames. About seven or eight of us went on a long weekender up to Eureka Springs one time and we had a blast, with the exception of riding down the curvy mountain road in darkness and in a heavy fog heading home our last morning.

Anyway....it's good to be back.

Welcome back. Be careful who you admit to knowing. Some of the older ones have a touch of senility.

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