Shameful lurker no more

Hi everyone, I hope this is the correct forum for this. I've been an avid off road motorcycle enthusiast for most my life, with minor forays into street riding. The whole family used to ride. My son is away in college (my best riding buddy), the toyhauler is gone, and the wife and daughter have moved onto horses. I decided adventure riding was for me, seems perfect.
I've been lurking because I was ashamed of my lack of ride in my signature. Ashamed no more! A shout out to inmate goodcat8 for allowing me to purchase his minty 08 990. I finally feel like I belong and look forward to contributing in some way in the future. Thanks in advance for everyone's patience.

But we can fix that. We have the technology. Does your new ride look like this?
