Thumbs up Mid Life Crisis

Hey,
I rode for years then, got married had kids sold bikes.
Well I am about to be forty and I needed to some some of that back so I just picked up a VFR1200f with the dual clutch. Its a great Sport Bike with some Touring qualities. I know what you are going to say, No serious rider does not roll with out a clutch. But the paddles give all the flexibility of a full standard minus the occasional miss shifts, (and don't say you've never done it ).


I like to ride Sundays and occasional weekdays. Usually up 149 through the Huntsville park, on the north side.
