Hey Gary,
Welcome. New guy here in too. I'm in Naperville. You reached out last week.
We'll have to try to get together sometime.
How did you enjoy ND? I'm going to try to get up there next month. I've been about everywhere else in WY and SD.

The broccoli says 'I look like a small tree', the mushroom says 'I look like an umbrella', the walnut says 'I look like a brain', and the banana says 'Can we please change the subject?'

Hello Gary, welcome to the VTXOA!

You had a good ride on your VTX already!

Your avatar needs an update, that red MC does not look like a VTX!
Enjoy the ride!
