wordy intro

Greetings all-
I just turned 60. Can’t really believe that I’ve now got more behind me than forward! Never the less ‘been cycling really all my life. My daily ride I bought new in 1968, Raleigh Super Course up graded with Campy, and I still put nearly a hundred a week on it. I live in Austin now, but spent the last 11 years on an island in the Pacific so small private autos where prohibited and everyone rode a bike. Those days I rode a ’63 Royal Scot (Sturmey Archer) which was dedicated to the sea when I sailed back to the mainland on my sailboat as rust had won. My newest bike is a 2000 DeRosa which my wife had made on a trip to Italy for my 50th birthday. My oldest bike is a Raleigh Tourist war bike -1946 with dyno hub. My interest are somewhat mixed between retro and new but find myself wanting to keep it simple. I’m a Buddhist of about 35 years, love good Tequila and a good cigar (old Chinese proverb- “water too pure have no fish”). ‘Have continued to probe the bike forum for answers so I thought I should join.

Welcome to Bike Forums young man (I'll be 66 in a few weeks ). Nice bike collection.
If you're looking for other TX riders to ride with, stop by the Texas Regional subforum.
And if you want to hang out with the "old timers" stop by the 50+ forum.
