Greetings all. I have been reading BF for a while and decided it is time to say hello. I am a 57 year old guy that is wired to go. I have been riding on the roads in one form or the other for about 30 years. I have been known to do the more eccentric things for a guy my age and size. All of the kids are grown and on their own so I have more time to enjoy the bikes and the adventure that comes with them! My parents gave me a gene pool with the mind of a marathon runner and a bike racer and the body of a football lineman. Dirty trick indeed. My new ambition is long distance touring and I am planning a couple of tours for this spring and summer. Take care all and be safe and healthy in 2010!
