Retired Army ('93); 2 daughters through college; 1 of 'em married; #3 still in college; 'bout time to start riding again. Used to ride but not overseas. Live between Fredericksburg and Quantico, VA. Looking forward to ride in the mountains and take some longer trips. Browsing the Forum for technical / mechanical suggestions from those who have more time and experience. Hope wife will ride with me; she's pretty calm about the whole thing though. Then again, if both of us were as excited about riding a cruiser, we'd have to flip to see who gets the back seat.
