On the road again

Postby mrrotervater » Fri Jul 01, 2011 5:06 pm



I have been doing up my 1981 Gl1100, tomorrow is a big day for me as I am taking it out for the first time on the road, that may not seem a big deal but I am 65 years old and last was on a bike some 30 years ago, a bit nerving but determined to get out and relive my youth, from the days of the Ace Cafe. wish me luck.

Took the my 1981 Gl 1100 out on the road today and covered 25 miles, first time I have been on a bike for over 40 years and loved every second of the ride.

Take it slow and easy. I had not been on a bike in almost 20 years as of last fall. Now about 6k miles later I'm still riding, but have had a few close calls. Most of them were my fault for trying too much too soon. Enjoy yourself but pace yourself as well. :D
