Hello; I am new to the forum & will be hanging out @ the Clydesdale & Touring forums [if ther is one]. I am a bicycle tourist and general rider. I have been touring since 1980; have crossed the states 4 times and went to my 50th HS reunion in Illinois this last spring/summer. Very HOT ride; everyone told me that the weather was 'unseasonable.' I look forward to discussing issues that large riders face.
