I just wanted to stop by and say hello to the group...it also puts one of five posts behind me before posting to the classifieds with pictures.
I don't remember a time before owning some type of motorcycle. Hondas early on with the QA a couple SLs, CRs for motocross and the occassional XR while racing off-road out West.
Interstates and Aspencades and long miles in the 80s.
Harleys in the 90s...baggers mostly...it was a phase.
Buell X1 Lightning Red Racing Stripe Edition until the begininning of this season. Ultimately built and tuned to more power than sense!
Back to Hondas with a 2004 VTX 1300C two weeks ago. It was like putting on an old, well broke in, pair of shoes. Laided back geometry is much more relaxing than Erik Buell's twitchy rendition of the Sportster.
My VTX was poorly stored in MN and helped make it a very affordable choice. Carb clean, SCAR mod, PAIR removal with Terry's block offs, K&N, and I see why you people like to ride these bikes.
Long winded hello perhaps, but wanted to thank everyone here for the info I gleaned from the Cafe in the last few weeks.
