Greetings from Canada's West Coast!
Here I am, a mid-40s fella, heading towards medical retirement from a career in Law Enforcement, due to PTSD from too many awful things in my forensics specialty. I have had motorcycles on my 'bucket list' for about 25 years, but haven't ridden since I was on a dirt bike around the age of ten.
My darling wife bought me motorcycle lessons for a birthday gift this year, and in the focus on UN-learning how to balance the bike, I actually found some new balance in my head.
So, now, I have a KLR 650 in the garage, and I'm just starting to putter about, and the possibilities are exciting, and I try hard not to overwhelm myself... And to keep having a little bit of fun, every day.
I am blessed here in Vancouver Canada to have a climate that mostly allows all year riding, so long as getting wet isn't bothersome. I'm looking forward to learning to get along with my new Burro (as I have named him), and to see where we go together. New horizons.
