Hi! I'm Dan and very happy to be on this forum. I'm retired from the USN (Vietnam Vet). I worked many years in the retail auto parts field until I retired fully. Now it's take it easy time. I do have stage 3 COPD but I'm still riding. I went to my CTX700 because of the weight distribution - easy for me to maneuver around. Been riding over 60 years and not giving it up yet - not as fast as I used to be, but still give myself the "pucker factor".
