    Still alive (Mostly)

    Hello;
    I've been gone a long time, but I'm still alive and kickng. I've been recovering from a major illness, and have been grounded for the last few months. I finally got back in the saddle yesterday and rode 75 miles with my club. My arms are sore as hell from gripping the throttle and clutch, but I'm still smiling.

    Wow, there still is a Beginner Bikers forum. I had to post something here once I figured out how it worked, it's been a while. The years have zipped by. I'm 81, still riding, although not as much after open heart surgery and a triple by-pass plus valve replacement. Will be going on a 3 day ride up through Fresno via Hwy 33, then looping back over a number of back country roads yet to be determined. Take care, this forum meant a lot in the early days as a beginner biker for me.
    Oh Yes Norty and Terri both visited me when I was recuperating.

    Glad to hear of your successful recovery from your surgery and that you are still riding. Not surprised Norty and Teri visited you .. they are good peeps. Enjoy your upcoming trip. It seems so many of my friends have quit riding because they are in their 50s, 60s, 70s .. you are an inspiration ..
    The best thing you can buy for your motorcycle is gas.
