Evening all. 
oldtom here.  oldtom says hello all. 4070287859
First post here so here goes ...
I have been riding since 1964 and passed my test in 1965 on an Ariel Arrow.  I am some time into collecting my state pension and biking keeps the cobwebs off me. 
At the moment I have three bikes. 1997 VTR - currently on sale as my wrists can't take it anymore. A 2013 V-Strom 650 and a 2014 Kawasaki SX. 

This week I am hoping to collect a VL800 Intruder ( fingers crossed it all goes well).

I had an M800 in 2010 and a year later traded up to an M1500 and while it had all the power I wanted, it was a bit of a back breaker to ride any distance and it has now gone. I feel the need for a bike that's easier to get on and ride so I am going back to the 800, although the one I'm looking at is not the M model.  
 
Riding a shiny bike 5 miles to a "show off cafe" is not my thing. I'm more of a 'chuck a tent on the back and ride 300 miles and camp' sort of a rider. I like to spend more time riding it than cleaning it, but hey I might reform, there's still time.

Hi Tom

Arial Arrow, you must have been around the block a few times. Welcome and keep on riding safe, just to get rid of the cob webs of course !

Welcome Tom, pleased you have found us my friend. oldtom says hello all. 1530558013

PS Cruisers are a good bike to use as age creeps upon us as they look good with rider backrests which can be a god send.
