Welcome to a new LT rider int the Northeast

Wanted to let folks in the North East forum know that nawlinsjohn, who lived most recently in M'issippi, has moved with his lovely wife to CT and has bought a house in Hamden, where I also live. (I believe that this qualifies Hamden as the fastest growing LT community in CT, and maybe in New England, with a 100% increase in the number of LTs within the past few weeks.) John looked me up on the forum, sent me a PM, and we had an opportunity to get together for coffee on Saturday and to change out his front tire on Sunday. He's the man with a tire changer and tools! He's riding a beautiful black 2004 LT, and I believe he left today for a journey down south that will end up at CCR. I'm hoping that he can join those of us who plan to get to the next tech session on Sept 16.

So, I hope you all have a chance to meet John soon and welcome him to the North East.

Enjoy the area. Northwest and Northeast corners are the best places to ride. Get away from the New Haven area including the shoreline, too much traffic. Hope to meet soon face to face.
