New Member, Old Guy

Hi, my name is Ed, from Colorado. Just got a 2015 green versys 650 LT, my 25th bike in 53 years. First bike was a Yamaha DT1, couple of Goldwings along the way. Love the Versys, very fun bike.

Welcome Ed from Colorado. And a hearty "all right" as well. As weljo says, old guys rule! At least until we croak and then younger old guys rule.

Thanks guys. My purpose in life at this point, is to enjoy it. So, beside family and friends, have good toys and enjoy them. My favorites have always included motorcycles. My favorite one now is the Versys!

Wait! What? We're gonna croak? Hang on. Nobody told me about this. Damn what should I wear? What's gonna happen to my Versys? Are you absolutely sure about this? Now I'm starting to worry.

If I had known I would live this long, I would have taken better care of my body.

Thanks Civit, makes me feel better. I may be older, but I won't admit it, as I am in my 2nd childhood, am only as old as I act.
