Greetings!

I was an infrequent visitor to RPS, but it seems to have gone away for good. So I’m here to plague all y’all. :giggle:

Mine is a red 2002 Ranger XLT Supercab 2 door 2wd with a ground poundin’ 2.3 and a 5 speed. I bought it new, it’s virtually box stock and I absolutely love it! This is my second Ranger, my first one was an ‘83 that was all used up when I bought it for $500. I drove that one for 10 years. I was always a sports car guy. Now I wonder how I ever got by without a pickup.

As for me, I’m 61 years old, going on 19. My wife has probably given up on me ever growing up. I commute every day (unless it’s raining) on my Zero SR electric motorcycle. My stable also includes a Honda VFR and a Suzuki DR-Z400. I am a cat slave, and a slave to micro brew beer, spelled IPA.

Stopping before I bore you.

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Welcome! You may find that this is a group home full of misfits. But we like it here.

Got ya beat droid...I'm 70 going on 16, and I refuse to grow up. Unfortunately, when the mind says YEAH, the body says NEAH, and the body usually wins out.
My better half gave up on me many years ago, tho she still keeps trying.
Welcome and have fun.

Welcome from Georgia.
When Clint Eastwood was asked how he kept working at 85, he replied "don't let the old man in."
If it works for Clint, it works for me. I'm 72.

If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?
The good news is 60 is the new 40, the bad news is 9pm is the new midnight. Welcome.

Welcome! You've found a great new home. At one point or another I've been a part of most every RBV forum, but this is the only one I kept coming back to. Wish we still had RPS around, definitely a lot of good info lost for the street/lowered crowd when it went down, but I think you'll like it here.

That Zero SR sounds like a great ride. Looked into it a few times and if I were to get an electric bike, I think it would be a Zero. Like most electric vehicles they just don't have the range I'd need. I'd have to charge the thing every night for my daily commute and no place to charge it while at work.
