Hello from Durango

Saying HI!! from Southern Colorado. Snow in the mountains , rain in the valleys right now, makes the morning commute a little wet (18 miles each way) . I am new to motorcyles (06 klr bought in July, MSF Aug. 1) but spent many years riding mountain bikes. I always wanted a motorcyle and for my 34th birthday my wife said no time like the present. I have three kids: Ethan 7, Emma 5, Ellenor 1.5 and another on the way in April. To pay the bills I run a physcians practice. I added on to the house this year, so I have not spent much time getting the full Dual Purpose experience. As a family we spending alot time camping and playing kiddy sports. I love to hunt and fish and have been blessed with a son and daughter who want to be just like dad... dads you know what this means... more toys . I am a traditional bow hunter( not Howard Hill style, but more modern reflex/deflex), so yes the kids both have long bows. Ethan can also throw a pretty tight loop with my 3 wt. Scott flyrod, he thinks he needs his own "pretty rod" now. Here is a pick of the bike on the way home from the dealership. I will also enclose a pick of the family on a trip to Grants Pass to visit my family last year... By the way I grew up in Grants Pass and moved to Durango in 1993 to finish college and a buck we found in behind our house last fall.


Thanks for the great site. And would love to get together to change the dreaded doo, give Lucy a tune up and go for some great rides and yes I always carry my flyrod cause there is always a great stream that needs to be fished and forged...

Was on the way home from the dealership... no lisc. or MSF class yet. Lucy only had 0.5 miles on her, left the next morning to go camping and fishing with the boys she came back with 73 miles and no fish.
