Another PDX newb..sort of.

Hi All,

After taking an extended break from the forums I decided it was time to get active again.

I am 51 and ride a 2015 KTM Adventure 1190s the more street oriented model. This is my daily commuter and I ride long distance tour rides with this bike as well, think Iron Butt Saddle Sore 1000mi rides and the like.

Hope to see you all out on the road.
MotoDan and Greg like this.

Welcome Shifty.

I'm 53 myself, ride the more dirt oriented '15 Tiger 800 XCx and I don't commute on it. That being said I usually ride it for at least 250 in a sitting and have just shy of 28000 miles in the slightly over two years that I have owned it with a bit over a thousand of those being an SS1K I did with it in June.

If you're down for a ride in the soup I can usually be found on Fridays fighting my way to the beach. I run heated gear and cans so mid-40s to 30s isn't a problem, just no icy or white stuff please as I've already had the pleasure.

Take care and stay safe,
