    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.

    Nice to meet you! It is always good to here from someone who is keeping the weight off.
