newby first post

Hi, I'm a 67 year old guy from Milwaukee Wi. I'm getting back into bikes after a long time not riding. I've loved cycles ever since high school & lusted after the Triumphs & X6 Hustler etc. I hope to learn a lot...not much I can contribute yet...Randy

Re: newby first post

Welcome. You thinking about a specific bike? Plenty of good used stuff out there. Be cautious, getting back in takes a little break -in to be safe. Lots of traffic changes in the past few years, around here anyway.

Hi, It will be an early LT. I've been riding a scooter but I have to get used to shifting again. Like you said...gotta be careful.

Welcome from Covina, CA!
Good luck with an early LT!
I chose that route, and I love my 2000!
