Morph aboard.....

Sorry, not really that exciting but this seems like a great forum...Hello all, I am 48, have a hundred thousand or so miles under my belt (25K of those being radio dispatched moto-courier in the 80s) and grew up in SW Ohio in the Golden 70s racing Moto-Cross. I commute 26 miles RT to work by motorcycle and via bicycle. I Save Sunday mornings for worship -of the twisty roads- that grace us in nearby north central KY. I am currently riding a '08 KTM Duke 690, came to that from an '03 SV650 naked. Convert to the taller bike mold. I am a Versys admirer, maybe as my next bike. A good friend and MTB riding partner just got an 09 in Blue. (He may lurk on over here as "Mellocat") I think we can mount a bicycle carrier to this motorcycle! Just here to learn and yearn.
