New From Central TX

I currently don't have my GTL yet, somewhere on a boat working its way here. I started riding in 1967 on a Honda CB450 and since then have had a Kawa, BMW, Indian, HD, and a short time with a Slingshot. I retired from the Army after 34 years and did contracting work supporting the Army for another 11 years as a data analyst. I'm now retired and enjoying life.

Re: New From Central TX

Rich, if you learn at least one thing from this site, it should be this: THCR.

Welcome to the site.
