Musings of a former Clyde.

After a little prompting from txvintage in another post, I felt compelled to explain my absence from this forum. There are varied reasons, but I'll stick to the main ones. The truth be known, I don't know that I can contribute any more knowledge to this forum. I have been lurking and noticed that all the questions and post are always answered by those who are far more qualified then myself. Second, I really don't meet the criterion of a Clyde anymore. For the last year, for the first time in many years, my weight has been under 200 pounds. Also, my scope of riding has changed. I now added mountain bike riding, which as caused me to spend more time on another forum. Finally, I felt that many of my post sounded as if I were bragging and that is not the way I wished to sound. Add in a job change and life in general, it has been hard to find the time to post here. I am always willing to post here if you will still have me, and feel that I can add to this great community known as the Clydesdale and Athena forum.

As a "former Clyde" you are automatically given the right to post. Your experience and knowledge will always be welcome.
