Old dog, old tricks
OK, back in the saddle after almost twenty years. Finally got around to getting a bike again before it's to late. I'm 51 and have been borrowing and riding others bikes for far to long. Found me a nice '05 919 w/4.5K miles, very clean. When I was looking to buy I considered cruisers and Harleys and went for a few test rides but couldn't see why I would want to lounge around when I ride. I've always loved a good roller coaster and this bike is a great ride for me. This forum has been a big help. Since I bought the bike I have replaced the original 10 year old tires, removed the smog, fixed a couple wiring problems, dialed in the suspension and modified the rear fender all by reading through these threads. You guys are a great resource. I'll post some photos soon as I get the chance. Got the bike 10/16 and I'm already annoying my wife and kids by disappearing twice a week on rides. Trying to get hours on the road to relearn some old tricks. If you're SF EastBay I'll see you on the road.
