Back in the saddle
« on: August 29, 2008, 08:43:00 am »
After the better part of 2 years I've decided to get back on board with the COG community. The old COG website was not appealing to me anymore, it always seemed to have the same old stuff listed. This new forum seems better suited to keeping informed.    I'm still riding my old '86 sporadically as time permits. I retired with the idea of spending more time riding but that hasn't worked out. I used to ride more when I worked cause I could ridw the bike to work.    Anyway, I'm still and active member of COG and look forward to spending some time reading the forum posts.    S.

Welcome back Steve...  Hopefully the word will spread and we'll see more traffic here. The down side is that almost all forum and email list discussions tend to run cyclic, so be prepared for many oil & tire threads :)      --  Steve Smith, #3184  COG Northeast Area Director  (somewhere in south central CT)    If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

In the saddle, that's definitely the place to be.    Though I'm far from retiring, most of the people I know who've 'retired' are busier than they were when they were working. It's usually grandkids, travelling, hobbies turned businesses or all that stuff they've been wanting to do on and around the house for the last couple of decades. I don't know if I'll have the energy to retire when the time comes. :)
