Checking in

Howdy. Just doing the courtesy check-in so the proprietors know who is in the house!

Not much to tell about me other than a pretty much a lifelong love of any mechanical conveyance with two wheels.

Picking up a new to me GL1800 later this week. One-owner bike that has been meticulously cared for. It will be my third Gold Wing but first 1800. I did rent one for a day on a 2006 trip to Hawaii and spent the day touring as much of the island as I could pack in.

My other ride is a Suzuki DL650 Adventure. It's a great commuter and around town bike but lacks some things for the road trips. At present I'm thinking I'll sell it when tax returns start coming in next spring.

Nice place you all have here. The volume of information representing the brain trust is already proving helpful.

Kind regards to all -

Glad to have you! Another Texas Howdy from beautiful, scenic West Texas (not). If you enjoy wind you would love this countryside.
