Welcome from Canberra. Australia......I agree John, at 58 year young I try to make the most of life every day but I started doing that from age 18, my wife says I still haven't grown up. Enjoy your rides, post some photos and get involved with the discussions.

Welcome to the site from Arkansas. Sounds like you have two good bikes. Enjoy and be safe out there

Hi OldManJohn -
G'Day John, from frostbite (Greg) in COOMA NSW, Australia - I too am only a new member here only about a week I think - Great bunch of people here - from all over this place called Earth . The Virago looks very well kept and low mileage too - it should do you for quite a few years .... and you are only a young fella at 58 - sheesh, I'm 64 and I don't feel it when I am riding ... Glad to have you join us here - tell us a bit more of your riding background as I am sure you have some stories like the rest of the guys & gals here ....

Take Care John - Ride Safe,

Hi Hi Hi. Whoops I got stuck
Hello from San Antonio

Welcome from snowy central New York. Enjoy your time here, whatever you need there’s someone here who will help you out with it.

Hey John, just a year older. Some days I feel like a fairly young man and then there are other days I'm reminded of my age. I think it is from trying to do those young man things when I'm feeling young. Still can ride even when I'm feeling old and that makes me feel young again. From the other side of the US in Medford, OR.

Thank u. All for the welcome. I appreciate it..
Shout out to Australia,. Awsome to hear from the land down under.

Welcome from WA. State. I got both you beat I'm 10 years older then yous guys. I ride every day. You have picked a great little bike to ride and work on. I have three One with 60 K one with 30 K and a new one with only 1000 miles but only had it two weeks. Have a great time riding them and be safe..

Another welcome from Aus ... there's lots of us here John !

Tks. For all the welcomes. Hey Australia !.
Australlia guys, weve a lot of white tail deer,, possoms, raccoons crossing roads here in My Alabama USA. . Jjus lost my 15 year old
Australian Red Heeler . She was best dog ever had. I can see the Dingo in her when i watch National Geographics.
Ever have any of those Dingos, Roo's, or down under creatures cross in front of yall outback?

No dingos but plenty of kangaroos ... common as cockroaches . Don't have to go as far as the outback to see them ... they regularly bounce up and down our street

Sorry Peter but not having ever seen a Roo outside the zoo. The thought of one hopping down the street makes me chuckle

Vardy, yea I can imagine, ive seen lots of National Geographic, as well as All Steve Irwins croc ,snake,etc shows.

John, welcome to the community, from snow-covered Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I envy you guys who can ride after November 1st. My Valkyrie has been in storage since early October, but I’m pretty sure I’ll get in a weekend ride in early December, as I’m headed to Brisbane, AUS, to check on some business opportunities - and Spratty is going to meet me and provide some guidance with riding on the opposite side of the road! I’m really looking forward to it.... and the potential business

Welcome from Kansas City. I live in an unusual spot. I've got deer, wild turkeys, racoons, possums, fox, hawks, owls and more across the street. That's just in the first block heading west from my house. On the other side of the soccer fields, I also have a zoo. Kangaroos? No problem. It's the Chimps who escaped that caused the lock down. LOL

So Edwin ... Planet Of The Apes takeover started near your place !!

Well, they do keep the B-2's at Whiteman AFB. ..........."They blew it up!" - George Taylor (Charlton Heston)
