Hi All

Hi All,

I just signed up a few days back. I am planning on getting back on a Bike. Around 10 years back i used to bike 2 Hours every day.

My Bike was a BSA Street cat with straight handle bars. Then i used to weight 120 pounds. Now i weigh 185 pounds and gaining.

I am quite confused with the whole biking scene in US and varities of bikes available for sale.

Welcome aboard!

There's certainly a lot of options for bikes out there, probably a good place to start would be narrowing down the type of riding you're looking to do.

welcome to the forums... I agree with the poster who said to decide on the type of riding you will most likely do....once you do that, go to as many shops as you can and test ride what they have in that category and pick the one that feels best to you...

BSA?? The only BSA I've ever seen was a motorcycle. If you're talking bicycles got a picture you can post?
