Hey everyone! Cool forum!

Thought I would take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am a 58 year old man born, raised, live and will probably die in the greater Indy area. (The World Capital of Motor Racing.)

I had several motorcycles in the late 60's into the 70's, mostly Brit bikes, Triumph, BSA, even a Norton. I put them to the side to concentrate on business and career.

Now many years later after a successful career as a pro road racer (4 wheels not 2) and putting together a business in the racing industry where we own a racing supply/engine development/motorsports consulting facility. I often kid about being the most successful race driver that you never heard of.

I have semi-retired from the pro racing circuit but still race at the club level for the pure fun and challenge of racing.

Last year I finally gave in and returned to my early motorcycling roots and bought a 2005 Fat Boy late last year. I absolutely love it and so does my lovely and helpful wife (also my business partner).

The Fat Boy is Vivid Black with Stage 1 upgrade, V & H Shortshots, HD Beach Bars, quick detach windshield and luggage rack/backrest. Believe it or not I don't feel the need to add or change anything else on my putt. I have exactly what I was looking for when I bought it.:clap:

I guess I am getting long winded here.
Pleased to meet all of you.

Thanks for the warm welcome. Looks like a fun forum.

Carrie, if you must know, I have an engineering degree from Purdue and an associates degree from the IU School of Business. How do you like me now?
