Starting Again...

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by Twisted Wrister, Jul 22, 2016.

  1. Hi all! Figured this was the place to finally lose my posting cherry. Grew up long ago riding dirt, made the progression to road, but stopped riding when my son came along. While it never fully left, thanks to a few dirt days & trying to hang on to a MTB downhill, I've given in to that itch & gotten back to riding on the road. So glad I did. Even though it meant starting from the bottom again.

    The stomachs bigger, the ego is smaller, but the induced smile is as constant as it ever was...

  8. Welcome mate :cool:
  9. Thanks for the welcomes people, much appreciated!

    Just bought a Vulcan S. I tried a fair few bikes before I committed. In my head I was getting an MT07 from the beginning, but the more I sat on/rode the long list got smaller to where it was between cruiser or adventure. Again, the more time I spent on a cruiser, comfort over speed won. Still got 12 months until my fulls, but this laid back riding definitely has an appeal.

    Oddly I've only got a couple of photos, but I'll post a few as soon as I get some that don't have me in them! Haha
