Default New Rider from Arzona

I bought a Cross Country Tour last month. My brother was coming out from Oregon and he was bringing his Harley out to ride, so I thought that I might rent a bike for the week he was here.
All it took was to go into the local Victory dealer here in Kingman and I was moved from renting to owning. I had sold my 07 Yamaha Venture a couple of years ago when my knee was giving me too much trouble to safely ride. With new medicine, I no longer have so much problem with the knee but thought I was through with motorcycles. I guess I was kidding myself, eh?
Did a 400 mile loop around Flagstaff, Sedona, Prescott, Grand Canyon and other spots while Dave was here and have done some other riding as weather allows. I have forgotten what it was like to be out on a bike. Can't call myself a motorcyclist, maybe more of a tourist that likes the trip more than the destination and there is no better way to see the country then on a motorcycle.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
