Hello from Kentucky

New guy enjoying the ride!


I've never thought of myself as a "joiner" but my wife says that I have more forum memberships than anyone else she knows. I guess she's right because here I am again.


After riding through my youth, like most people, I quit riding when I thought I didn't have enough time being a professional adult. In 1988 I changed my life in a big way and began riding again with my son following a messy divorce. By the time he moved out, years later, I had quit riding again because HE didn't have enough time to ride and I just let it go.


Now, I've dug my old 1989 Diamondback MB out and have been riding for almost two years around town. This time seems like another life change as we've moved from the farm to town and are enjoying the new bike trails etc. Last week I ordered a new 2018 Trek FX 3 in 25" Viper Red and I'm pretty excited to get my hands on that new mount. Glad to be here!


Jus' ride it!

Hello from Madisonville, Danville has trails?, we have none. Been enjoying the trails in Owensboro. Forums are falling from favor in the age of Facebook(which I quit years ago), this one is pretty active.
