How goes it MTBR,
I'm the new kid, and I'm as green as they come. My name is Brad, and I'm from a small town in Eastern-Utah...I've been a dirt-bike guy my whole life, riding & racing in the deserts of Utah. It's only been fairly recently that the idea of picking up a mtn. bike has crossed my mind, and to be honest...I honestly haven't ridden any style of pedal bike since I was a kid. However, I'm sincerely looking forward to seeing what this side of the two wheeled world has to offer...along with building relationships with many of you.
Until yesterday I technically didn't even own a bike yet, as my local shop just placed an order for my bike sometime over the past week or so...but that all changed earlier today when I got a phone call to come pick up my 2014 Specialized "Rockhopper Comp"!!! I'm not really sure just how 'serious' I should anticipate getting with this whole MTB thing yet, as I have another passion/activity that consumes the majority of my time & money...more than anything I'm just hoping riding a Mtn. bike can help get me back into shape and keep me involved on two wheels, now that my time on a motorcycle is starting to come to an end.
Please forgive me seeing as how this is only my 2nd post ever, and I haven't had a chance to browse through previous topics yet...but with that being said I'm a complete & total NOOB to this scene. What kind, if any advice can be offered & recommended for a guy like me who wants to 'get his feet wet'...but just isn't too sure how to go about getting involved in the community and start enjoying my new bike to the fullest (I'm pretty scared & nervous). Anyway, thanks for hearing me out...I'm looking forward to exploring the forums a little more and getting to know a few of you guys & girls better!!!
