Greetings from the other Portland and welcome back to the sport. I hope you took a refresher course after being away for so long. There's so much to know and we want you around this forum for a long time. You made an excellent choice of bike - congratulations!

Thank You

Thanks for the welcomes to the forum. A lot of good information and help. Great community. Great advice on a rider course after so long away. When I first picked up the Bike I thought I was crazy. A lot of bike. Drove back roads very slowly at first. Before putting the bike away for the winter I put over 1500 miles on it. It is coming back to me but still a lot to remember and learn. I just got Ride Like Pro V and plan on practicing the exercises as weather permits. Also have many friends that have bikes that have been very helpful. Once again Thanks to All. So Happy I Got a Vic.

That Ride Like A Pro DVD is great info. The techniques one learns from it are very helpful when on really twisty roads and switchbacks, as well as parking lot maneuvers. I got my money's worth out of it - even after 55 years of riding (at the time of purchase - I now have 60 years).

I'm just a kid compared to my riding buddy, John, who is 79 - 4 years my senior and rides a Honda NT700V. He started earlier than I did, so he has more years than me. Together, we have about 130 years of riding. Doing 4 digit trips is the norm for us. We used to ride full boat touring bikes for decades, but they got to be too heavy for us old farts. :crzy:
