Howdy, I'm a newbie to this forum and looking forward to chatting with you folks.  Currently living in Southern Illinois, riding 2012 Silver Wing after almost 46 years no riding at all.  I'm now 74 years old and my last ride was 1980.  I'm taking it slow and easy trying to get back some long-forgotten skills.  Wish me luck and safe riding.  Hope to see some of you on the road.

Welcome to the Forum Tom, from the UK.

One main advantage you have not being on a bike for so long is probably not stamping the running boards looking for the back brake or grabbing an emergency stop trying to change gear.

Also make friends with the search bar, if not already. for all things Swing and a bit more besides.
I find keywords work best.

Be safe, be seen!
