Time for introductions.....
My name is John:
- I live in Valrico Florida (near Tampa)
- I'm 53 years old (yea I know, I'm getting old but don't feel it)
- I rode dirt bikes from the age of 12 until 19
- I rode steet bikes starting at 16
- I've owned three street bikes (Yamaha, Norton and Kawasaki)
- I've been out of riding for close to 20 years, when I say out of riding I haven't owned a bike in close to 20 years - I've ridden periodically (friend's bikes) over that time
- I'm looking at sport-touring bikes - Honda ST, FJR, Kawasaki, and really interested in the Triumph Sprint ST.
- Since I'm an 'old man', I believe in AGATT - well I don't always wear riding pants, but then I wear jeans. That includes always wearing either a full face helmet or my new flip-up. It gets hot and humid here in Florida, and while I might be more comfortable not wearing a helmet, they have saved my melon more than once, so I elect to wear one.
