Default Old Fart

Hi folks, I don't really know what to tell you except that I'm an old fart that has been riding since I was 16 (less of course the mid years of my life in which I was raising a family and had no money to spend on bikes and the such). I began riding again a few years ago and just upgraded to a Victory XCT.

Welcome to the Victory Forums and congrats on the XCT!

Plus 1 on the never too old to ride. Old farts may have to take more breaks (for some of them it may be to adjust their adult diapers) but they can still ride!!

Welcome Old Fart from the soggy Pacific Northwet. Where are you? I started riding at age 13 back in 1949 on a neighbor's Doodle Bug - the real one. First owned bike was a Simplex Servi-Cycle when I was 16 in 1952. So far, I'm the Old Fart King here, are you taking my crown away? You're welcome to it and I welcome someone who has been around longer than me.
