Jim, it's great having you with us! When you have a moment to post about yourself and where you ride, we're always interested in details! Photos are a huge plus and much appreciated. IMGUR is a great free photo hosting site that makes posting photos along with what you write 'copy & paste' simple, for whatever that may be worth! Enjoy the site, ride safely, and thanks again for being here!..

A bit more about me. I live in a college town in northern New York, between the St. Lawrence River and the Adirondack Mountains. The newest interstate is 70 miles away so my day-to-day riding is all on secondary roads.

I also ride a 1974 BMW R90/6 and a 1978 Yamaha SR500. For most of the riding I do, the XT225 is my “go-to” bike. There are many things I love about it (but you already know plenty of those) but what I really love is that I can usue all the power it has and not get myself in trouble. I am not a hardcore dirt rider but more of an explorer/wanderer.

More than 30 jobs in 49 years of marriage—construction, graphic arts and teaching. I spent the last 15 years of my working life jacking up and moving (smaller) buildings. Another of my interests is letterpress printing and I have a print shop in one-half of the garage. My wife insists that the other half of the garage belongs to her!

Three grown and married daughters, four grandchildren and a ten-week-old golden retriever puppy. Life is indeed rich. I am blessed.

Enough.


Jim
