    Hello,

    I am migrating from the "other" forum like a few others. Why? After only a few months, I didn't get a good vibe from it, so let me start over in this one.

    I bought my first bike 5 months ago - a 2019 Chieftain Classic. I'm 56 years old and never rode before, so when I caught the bug last August and told my wife, her first reaction was to tell me I needed to get more life insurance! She warmed up to the idea (after I got more insurance...kidding) and even helped me pick out the bike. I commute on it almost daily in Northern Virginia (DC metro area), including all throughout the winter. I've learned a lot riding in the traffic each day and I joined this group to hopefully learn more.

    Welcome from Southern Illinois.

    Beautiful bike. I love that color combo.
    I guess if you can survive DC traffic you'll survive anywhere.
