New guy

Yup,its so good to be new at something.
After lurking for a long time,I decided it was time to do some real riding.I am 57 years old,and live close to Richmond.I have 40 years of riding experience,and I am a full time bike mechanic.I started out adventure riding,and after belonging to forums that just talk about bikes,I ended up here.So,I am selling my FZ1000,and going on/off road.That will only leave me 6 bikes,lol. I hope to meet some of you guys at events!

I live in Asheville, NC, but I was up your way several times last year. Came though Waynesboro 3 times last summer.

Maybe we can hook up some nest summer. I love those roads up there.

Hell, it's all good. When do you want to ride. I don't know if I can wait untill summer.

Welcome down and dirty. I am just as new to this forum as you but you got a ways to go if you're going to be the oldest rider to grab a little dirt. The old fart I ride with is 61 and I'm only 8 months behind him. We have a camper outside of Morganton, NC and use that as a base to do most of our riding. We probably can't outride, out-wrench, or out-drink you but we gonna try like hell to outlast ya.

Cool! I'm here in Charlottesville doing BMW work. Do you work on your own, or for one of the shops? What brand?
