First Ride In 40 Years

Greetings!
Just bought the 2019 Duke 390 and very impressed! Bothers me all the idiots talking and asking about my “little” bike. Almost took it back on day one for a Ninja 650 which also has an upright rider position. Nope! Not gonna happen. This awesome bike only cost me $4500 with winter prices happening now here in West Virginia.

You're riding for yourself, not for them, who cares about their insecurities
Have fun with it, it's a blast to ride!

What’s your age Brother? Outstanding that you have found a motorcycle after 40 years!!!

Which box are you referring to? Unsure that I see it

This isn’t my first rodeo, but it is the first one with real clowns...

If you tick the box on a post, it enables you to insert that post in a quote.
Or to report the post, if you think it’s offensive or some other violation of forum rules.

Only a motorcycle rider can understand why a dog sticks his head out of the window.

Funny, I do not see the box now. So I am not sure what to say or think about that. I'm also sorry I did not reply to your sooner. I have not been here lately with a lot of craziness going on with LIFE. Taking care of three properties, my father, my father-in-law, four dogs and my JOB.

I need to learn what I have to do to respond or reply to posts here. Right now it seems I am not allowed to make any replies to any of the posts or threads.

Cheers Mate,

Jeff

lightning, Thank You Much!

Funny, right now I am not seeing that box. I have not been here at all since I signed up to join here. Life is crazy and busy at the moment.

With Gratitude,

Jeff
