Old dog new tricks

Greetings from the land of corn, where hills and curvy roads are an interesting phenomenon that happen to other places . I decided to stop being a Luddite and join the forum because I'm trying to get back into riding after a five year hiatus.

It's always nice to get back on the bike. It's like childhood all over again on that first ride. Welcome to Bike Forums!!

Welcome to Bike Forums. Glad you joined us. What bike(s) do you ride?

welcome to the forums. We do not have the corn here in S.E. Texas, but we have everything else exactly the way you described it.

It's a Salsa Vaya GX. I sold off all the old gear, bikes and parts, I'd accumulated over 15 years to buy it.
