Welcome aboard, its great to have you join in with us here in the forums. A good number of cyclist are/were motorcyclist, myself included, I guess its a natural progression to move between the two wheeled variants. Make yourself at home, just surf through the forums and pick out a few that will suit your cycling interests best.

Thanks all



My first real bike besides my huffy, was a Giant 640 Iguana. Was frost red with RST shocks.

Wanted to get back in the game so i got a 1985 Schwinn World. Then after a little research i found out it was subbed out to Giant... G0185

Always loved anything on two wheels, got out of it for a while because of bad experiences with people that worked at bike shops. I remember the last time was like 10 years ago, all i wanted to put the biggest tires on my bike so i could ride in the snow..... everyone at the shop said i was crazy.
I lived in Montana at that time.

Thanks again guys
