Hi Chuck! At least you know how to ride a bike, so you aren't quite a complete noob . That sure is an upgrade, though!

Glad to hear that you made it through the heart attack, and are obviously bent on keeping further heart attacks at bay...you might want to check out the Clydesdales/Athenas forum--the folks there are very good motivators, and a lot of them have gone through the same stuff you have.

Welcome to BF!

I think Chuck is just so happy and excited to find us that he could not contain himself!

Actually, the more you ride, you will find out that the sheepskin is a bad idea! It puts too much pressure on the perineum. It will take a few weeks to get your rear hardened to a saddle, but bear with it!
