Been way too long

Haven't been on a motorcycle for near twenty years. Finally, kids are grown-up, got an itch to ride again, and started researching. Ended up buying a 2007 "wee" with 9k on it and plenty of add-ons. Never have I been so excited to see spring again. Well that's my introduction and representing south western Oregon.

Welcome, Oregon. Are you around Klamath Falls? I lived there for a lifetime in high school. Seemed like it anyway. Bobby

welcome

Oregon is a great place to ride. I've put over 185,000km on my 2007 Vee and some of it in Oregon. Awesome campgrounds all over the state, and OMG the Oregon coastal highway!!!
