Hi from West Virginia

Probably a lot of people will write something about themselves as an introduction. I am hesitant to do so after

what I experienced on a different forum on a different subject to just open up and write about myself. I may

write something later unless I get kicked off for writing what I am about to write which would be unfortunate

because I do have a lot of questions about not only my bikes but also my mom and my deceased dad bikes

that they had bought at an auction along time ago. I am assuming until I write 10 posts that I am not allowed

to add pictures as attachments. It said something about URL waiting until 10 posts.

Hello from a fellow West Virgininian. Born, grew up and went to school in WV before moving away. Love the state. Welcome to Bike Forums.

Your post was edited to remove discussions about other forums. We are a cycling forum and avoid dialogue about what takes place outside of here.

Check out our Vintage and Classic forum. You’ll find lots of help identifying your parents bikes. You are correct you need ten posting before you can show pictures. That’s easy to do by just responding to other posts, asking questions, or posting in the Introductions sections to other new members.

Let's go Mountaineers. Grew up in WV.

Great place to ride.

Hi merlinextraligh,
I moved to WV from Texas. My step father, who I consider my father because he helped raise me, and then there is my biological dad,
who I call my dad because he was not in the picture. Anyways, my father's mom decided to move back to WV for retirement and so my
father decided to follow her back along with my mom or his wife and siblings. It took me several tries to finally get through college and
the Mountaineers are doing well but the better teams who may beat us are still to come.
