Sitting in a city meeting one time, a lady objected to a order that said they were going to use
( Bituminous Concrete ) to repair her road in front of her house,She said concrete was way to expensive.
She was mad as hell ! One guy stood up and said, lady sit down....Bituminous Concrete is black top, or
Asphalt. Did I learn a new word ( Bituminous ) ? Correct me if I am wrong.

Our whole town is in need of your services. Our town is going too pot !

Hey guys. Graduated college in 2009 and worked as a security officer at a hospital for 2 years. Now im in med school in the country Grenada. I bought my goldwing in Jan of 2011 in the middle of the winter. Had to shovel it out of a snow bank at some guys place. Only paid 400 for it tho. Brought it into the apartment (gf wasnt to pleased at the time) and fixed it up for spring and rode it ever since. Im itching to get back to the states in 3 weeks so i can do some spring cleaning on her and get back on the road.

I'm a Software Applications support tech for a large multinational corporation with their headquarters in St. Paul, MN. Been doing it for almost 9 years. I'm also a guitarist (and previously a drummer as well) for a few heavy metal bands in the Minneapolis/St. Paul music scene.

I've been riding for 6 seasons, previously owning a Yamaha Venture, CB900, and a Harley Sportster. Just recently bought an old 83' GL1100 Standard because I always wanted one.

And that does not include husband, father and volunteer.
Now, I am taking every day at a time, fighting Mantle Cell Lymphoma and Prostate Cancer. (Thanks agent orange and genetics) Chemo is in progress, I finish the first round this evening and go home Monday for a couple weeks then start over again, ending in about 5 months with Autogenous Stem Cell transplant and then work on the prostate cancer.
On good days, late in each treatment cycle I may be allowed to do some short rides, but that isonly a possibility on a day to day basis as my blood work allows me to be in open places with bacteria and other invasive "bugs".
I am anxious to try out my newly rebuilt GoldWing seat with a gel pad and new foam. :o

First time post here....Hello to all. I joined the Army in 1972(Vietnam) was on active duty for 14 plus years....got out(due to a woman) for 20 years and was able to join the NH Army National Guard in 2006 (it's the only branch that would take me at my age) became a flight Medic with a MEDEVAC blackhawk unit...went to Iraq, ate a bunch of dust and am now a full time Guardsman and just became eliglble to retire. Probable won't for another 6 months or so. During that 20 year break I was in sales. I have been riding since I was 18yo. Owned 3 Kawasaki 500 triples, Honda 550-4, 1983 V45 Sabre (great bike), 800a Kawasaki vulcan, 2005 Kawasaki Nomad 1600(for sale) and now just purchased a 2012 Blue GL1800 ABS and love it. 1800 miles on it so far. Looking forward to adding bling and making it my own. Have plans to ride the entire country over the next few years.

Thank you for your service both during Nam and Iraq , and welcome to the site and to riding the Caddy of bikes. With only 1800 miles the nipples are still on the tires so you have some riding to do . You will find that this site is very easy to ask questions and the bike is very forgiving and easy to ride. With time it will become second hand and you will enjoy it more.Don't be afraid to ask, the only dumb question is the one you don't ask.

Presently work for the wife clearing her ever increasing "honey do" list. This job started 3 years ago when I "retired" from my paying job as an RN (psych certified) working acute care/admissions. Over the years I spent 13.5 years in the Navy, was retired early on disabilities. Had real estate brokerage in SDiego in the late 70's-early 80's developing as well as normal buy/sell property mgt stuff. Went broke and lost everything when interest rates ran up to 23+% and cought me with many loans tied to prime. Lost hundreds of thousands and everything I owned (except my wing of course). Had owned 3 nite clubs during my time in the Navy also, all overseas in the Philippines. Spent 10 years there on active duty. Had a number of other smal businesses, from owning beauty salons (wife's idea) a couple restaurants, a bakery, even created/marketed a velcro system (when velcro was brand new), to attach hair pieces to your head. Have had two different hypnotherapy clinics, one in SDiego years ago and one in San
Antonio more recently. I'm sure I've had my hands in a few other things, but memory needs to be put on hard drive as is fading. May go back to work at least part time next year (after turning 66) in a paying job as this present honey do job has low pay, minor benefits and a boss that is difficult to satisify. That way I can afford to hire someone for the honeydo's and I'll keep doing the easy stuff like containing gang bangers high on drugs who use the mental health system to stay out of jail. Have learned there are actually very few crazy people in the world but a lot of criminals with the mental illness label. Of course most of these could be cured with an appropriate amount of lead inserted in the proper location with the correct amount of force. I have found most handguns have the correct amount of force and a little to spare. Multiple injections are allowed if necessary to cure the problem. Unfortunately society has not yet approved my methods of curing the disease that is epidemic in most large cities and spreading to small towns. Hopefully though at some point, this method will be approved for use by all law abiding citizens to squash this problem. Sorry about the length of this post, I'm stalling this morning about getting anything done.
