Cool 2100 days

Cheers everyone. It been 2100 since my last motorcycle ride and I'm afraid I have fallen of the wagon again an this time I landed on a Triumph RS. We will see where these roads take me.

Welcome!

I never counted the days, but I did have 13 years off myself so I know how it feels. Us "born agains" are always a bit surprised how quickly you feel comfortable again.

You got some really nice roads to explore out there with the Sprint RS, for sure. I had put 54,000 miles on mine that I bought new in late 2000.

Lots of good roads out this way. I was gettin older and with two new kids decided to take some time off. Back in the saddle again. Think seeing the world superbike races in Utah prolly didnt help much. Too bad it's getting cold out though. Ahh but its all good. By your profile pix it looks like we have same bike. :-)

Yeah, those were the days. The older I get the faster I was. That photo of me on my RS was taken at a "Triumph Track Day" event that I had organized. Lotsa fun. Even though my kids are all adults over 23 and don't need me, I still seem to ride with a greater sense of mortality these days.
