    Greetings all. I moved to Louisiana from Fort Campbell, KY after the army asked me so nicely to retire. I ride a '17 Vintage that I seek to take on an annual Pain Train in honor of my late father-in-law, with whom I originally planned to ride with, although I missed my chance this year because I moved. I hope Pain Train 2020 is half as good as 2018.

    I do ride often up to NH, because I'm originally from there, and my folks are still there.

    I don't spend a lot of time on the forums, but in my travels, I'm either looking for information, or found something somewhat interesting.

    Thank you. Is it me, or does this seem to be a reunion of the folks I used to talk to at the other site? I was wondering where they all went.

    Dunno. I maintain a healthy dislike of the other site, but most of us came from there.

    This is sort of refreshing. It was nice being able to chill out for a chat with folks I felt like I knew, until it started to feel like it was getting late at the party. I stepped back for a while, and when I came back, it was all different, and sterile as a doctor's office. As a teacher, if I wanted to deal with a bunch of kids incapable of adult level conversation, I'd put a couch in my classroom.

    Now for the big question of the day, why can I not upload any pictures?

    Thank you, I ride up your way rather frequently, I have a good friend I stay with in Altoona, when I ride to NH.

    Thank you. Oddly enough, I go through Ohio often when I go to NH, because I do not care for I-81 in Virginia.

    Welcome aboard mate!

    Another interloper here - had the same handle on the other site. I still dabble and keep an eye on SF stuff mainly, but most of my time is here.

    I reckon you will find it a much happier place...;):mask:

    It didn't take much to notice that. As you see, I used the same handle as well. I remember being able to discuss just about anything, even beyond the motorcycle, you know, like human beings. But then not only the PC creeped in, but, I can only talk about the bike so much, when I'd rather read stories of folks' happenings on their bikes. I noticed that the people I talked to a lot left, and got replaced with some rather two dimensional personalities.

    I stopped logging on for a few months because of the drama, only to randomly log on one day to research people's dealership gripes, and even the site format had gone sterile. It felt too much like a doctor's office waiting room, and I went from "senior member" to registered, and folks thought I was new there.

    It was kind of refreshing to learn where the folks I would carry on an adult conversation with went.
