New Las Vegas, NV, USA Rider
This looks like a very nice community going here. I hope to make a lot of new friends and so on.
I live in Las Vegas Nevada. I don't think that I have ridden a bike in some 15 or more years. I still have not again as I write this.
I'm suddenly interested in riding because I just had a pretty serious health scare. I have never taken care of myself, and now I weigh 250 pounds at 5 foot 9 (Clydesdales here I come), and I had a serious lack of energy that just got worse and was interfering with my life. I went to the doctor and they found that I had 220/180 blood pressure, and immediately sent me to the hospital. They got it down, but now I am on a "quit screwing around" path. I know I barely evaded a stroke, and now I feel like I have been given a second chance. A LOT of people don't get that! I value every day now and have a newfound appreciation for life and the every day events within it.
I'm eating better now, but I also need to be in better shape. I'm not massive for my height but I am big. I am pretty broad shouldered and always have been. Thus I'm on the path to start riding. I'm open to folks from Las Vegas contacting me.
Here's to life and improving it!
