Welcome, It's always good to get more members.
Believe it or not, I've actually improved my riding style. Not much, but a little bit.
Too many times I run into posers that talk and act but don't ride. I went for a weekend ride with a fella that talked a great game.......... but walk & chew gum........... well that was another story.
I have the ugliest bike, the oldest equipment, wear the worst gear, but I have the most fun out there!
The best was when I rode with the KTMtalk crowd and they WOULD NOT let me load my bike. They insisted their 18 year old son loaded it. Nice!
