New guy

Hello,
Newby here, just picked up my ace 9/30. I'm retired antique automobile mechanic/museum curator. Now residing in Roanoke va. I am a die hard motorcycle rider, I have 5 motorcycles, all but one are antiques. I Lao have a 37 ford pickup that is a mild flathead powered hot rod project. My daily driver is an 86 Chevy c-10 pickup. my wife is retiring in March and we hope to hit the road in our ace then. First trip New Orleans then out west then to Maine.

Glad that you found us!
The Missus and I picked out a Class C Toyhauler, so that our bike could join in on the fun!
