Welcome New Old Guy (aka: actwin)!

 :grouphug:

  I picked up new in January of 2019.

I'm sorry it took you so long to find us, what?..16 months since you purchased the bike?
Well, anyway glad you are here now. Whatcha been up to in 16 months, any trips??

  Great people here.  Enjoy!

Rubber_Snake is right about that, however a few of those "great people" can't help from occasionally slipping into
political opinion, just ignore them (well no, don't ignore them, just ignore their political stuff.) and don't get sucked into the fray.

Marty...Marty...Marty   You can't leave the new guy hanging like that. Show him the button for the Arena and ask if it's the red pill or blue pill.  8)
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

There's a button?

Well, regardless, the new guy don't need no stinkin' button, as he's got a C14 and an AMA card.
He might need a flash, but he doesn't need a button, nor a pill choice.
(and you forgot the purple choice) 8)
