newOldUser from SW Ohio
My wife and I are in our 50's and we like to ride cruiser type machines. We each ride a Kawasaki Vulcan 750. We bought a 2003 and liked it so much that when it came time to buy a second bike we bought a 2006 Vulcan 750.
We ride about 4,000+ miles a year. Mostly on weekends and usually in 150-200 mile chunks. We like to ride back roads and forgotten highways through Ohio farm country. The interstates are something we take only as a last resort, there's just not much to see from an interstate.
I admire the people that can pound out a 1,000 miles a day on their bike but that's not me. I've got nothing to prove. I don't ride in bad weather (I own a car and know how to use it). I ride for the enjoyment of it, the things I see and people I meet along the way.
And one last thing about me.... I wave. Unless my hands are involved with clutching or braking, I'll wave as you go by. It's nice if you wave back but it doesn't bother me if you don't. I'll wave to people on the side of the road or cars if they wave first. Heck, I've been known to wave to a dog raising it's leg. I don't discriminate about the make or model of your bike, I'm just out to enjoy the ride and hope you are too.
