Hello all from Central NY

Came here, like many others, through a link about the FGAA dude.

Decided to join because I used to ride a lot. Then life happened and before I knew it I hadn't been on a bike in a long time (10+ years). Age and weight have added up in that time.
Still have one of my old bikes though. It's a late 70's Motobecane Mirage . Probably should dig it out and go through it.

As for personal info, I'm a 6' 300# guy. Married to someone who really doesn't deserve being stuck with me. About the only redeeming thing is that I have been an EMT / Firefighter for 20 years.

Did see a man in Herkimer doing a long ride, He started in Boston and is heading to Texas. Bike was loaded and he had a tag trailer. He was going to ride a couple more hours and then put down for the night. Strangest thing was that I had been looking at different bikes last night and one of the ones I kept coming back to was a Surly Long Haul Trucker. That is what this gent was riding so I got to see one up close and loaded.

Cooperstown is a beautiful place! Should be some great riding there!
Mate you looking to do touring type riding or more performance oriented?

Welcome to Bike Forums.
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. - Psalm 103:8

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.
