West Side Newb

Ladies and Gentlemen, Squids, Skids, Racers and Ranters,

I'd like to introduce myself. I'm a 40+ guy who has always wanted to ride and has finally taken the plunge and bought a bike. I do have a MOTO endorsement and so far I have taken both the MSF Basic and Experienced Riders Course. 60 days and 3100+ miles in, I'm loving it and hate that I waited so long to start! I hope to be a good responsible contributing member to the moto community and I look forward to learning and riding with you all. I'm too old to try to look cool anymore, and have too many responsibilities to try and be the quickest guy to " fail to navigate the turn" but I do want to learn to ride correctly in general at least enough to someday handle my future dream bike safely and proficiently. So if any of you are on the west side (belt 8 and I10) and don't mind mentoring/coaching a Newb. I'd love to hook and ride with you! MANY BLESSINGS!

Apehanger V.
Peace!

I was thinking this.

Also, with cooler temps will come "noob" rides.
Just are just no pressure, some will have experienced riders watch you and give pointers.
