I started riding 20+ years ago, but it was short-lived as I just had too much going on and not enough time. Got back into it this year after missing it. Took an MSF basic rider course (which doubles as a road-test, making the license easy) and bought... A 2012 Red Marble Haze Triumph Thunderbird. (Go big or go home!). Since I got it (exactly 2 months ago) I've put over 4K miles of back roads and mountains onto it, and I met some of you at the Bennington Triumph Bash in VT.
