Newbie from NorthWest (Seattle/Tacoma)

Hello all, I am 51 and now in horrible shape so I have decided to give cycling ANOTHER try. I am resurrecting a '97/'98 Raliegh M80 with wheels,tires,cassette and chain. My plan is to ride to work and take bus home 1 or 2 days a week,then work on riding home when sun is out until 9pm in July /Aug. As I said I am returning- best 1 day distance ,1990 Lewis County Historical Ride 68 miles on Bridgestone MB6. Coolest bike I have owned was a YAMAHA MOTO-BIKE in '77 one of the first full suspension bikes and darned heavy too, but it looked great.Coolest bike injury was when my front quick release went about an inch into my left forearm after a failed jump-rode to Madigan Army Medical Center for treatment then rode to barracks (man I miss being INVINCIBLE ). Wish me luck and THANK YOU in advance for answering my old guy questions.

Hello and welcome to Bike Forums!

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
