    Getting back into it

    Greetings all,

    I was an avid rider wayyy back when. I started when I was around 15 years old. Bought a 1987 Rock Hopper Sport and probably put well over several thousand miles on it before I had children and stopped riding. Back then, I was 160lbs. Now, I'm 300lbs. I want to start riding again. Mainly with my children, but also to get back in shape. My knees are shot so riding a bike is my best bet for cardio at this point.

    I'm now into offroading with my Xterra and have gotten back in to the outdoors. I enjoy camping, fishing, and of course, trail riding. I was thinking about how awesome it would be to take my bike on these trips to help me explore a little more into where my truck can't go.

    The main reason for me joining was to get some help with my bike. A fellow Xterra driver referred me here and said you all could probably help. Then I saw the Fat Boy challenge and really want to contribute to that as well.

    I started a few years ago at 47 and really enjoy it. Also own an xterra but don't offroad. With gas prices, I usually drive my old car for the mpg.

    Be sure to check out the clydes forum. Plenty of people your size ride.

    Good luck.
