    It's been a while....

    Hey all,
    Yeah, it's been a day or two...
    I retired from the Coast Guard in 2016, started working in the "real"world, bought a new house, with the new house... New baby (see avatar), now working for a yacht company building motor and sport fishing yachts. Swhooooo, I think that's about it! Oh, and caught up with a few good friends for a ride or two.

    That's once of the nice things about motorcycles; they patiently wait for us to come back for them. I've been riding for 45 years and have taken a number of breaks for family or career, and every time I come back I feel like I'm 10 years old again.

    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!

    Still on the fence with the bike, but every time I ride I realized something is better than nothing. It's still a reserve if needed, at least the aftermarket parts.

    Thanks Cliff! I lost that link and couldn't find the full video. It looks like December, probably around Christmas and New Year's.
