New from the northeast.
« on: August 12, 2019, 05:31:01 PM »
Hello everyone,

I’m new to the Huntsville area in the process of getting moved down from New York (upstate by Canada).  I’m originally from Maine but have lived around the country in Utah and Maryland/Pennsylvania as well.   

Currently I’m getting used to the heat as I’m commuting by bike.  That dry heat out west has nothing on this humidity down here. Time for some quality mesh gear I think.

I met a few of you already this past weekend on a ride and look forward to meeting more.  I’m currently on a Versys 650 but who knows in the future as I seem to switch them out every 2-3 years...

Welcome to the forum and to Alabama.  It was good meeting and riding with you on Saturday.   

Not the greatest pic but here's one with Lee and his silver Versys.

Welcome from a fellow Versys rider. Nice to have you join us.

Summer of '17, myself, @Mulley (also on a Versys) and and a couple of other members rode up through Maine into Canada (stayed overnight in St. Andrews) then back across through NH, VT and upstate NY on our way back home.

Nice trip with some good times and good memories.

You can read about it here. Maybe even see a few familiar places?

Welcome from the the east side of Huntsville.

If you have any questions, just holler.
