This is my current bike. I haven't had a bike in lots of years, my last one was a CB650 back in the early to mid 80's. Glad to be riding again.

Looks good. Your tinypic isn't so tiny though. :) It skews the page. Can you resize the image next time? Thanks.

Having grown up on a farm, I've been riding otorcycles since I was 8 or 9. My first road bike was an early 80's model Yamaha 400 twin which I rode for 4 years. then my kids came along and bikes went away till 1998, when I aquired a rather tired Honda CB750-4, which I used for 4 summers when I could get t to run. I finaly retired it in the parts section of the local paper. After no bike again till April 30 2008 I purchased a brand new 2007 Honda Shadow VLX600 Deluxe, that with the windshield, saddle bags, and pinstripe kit ran me $5800 out the door. as of November 20th the odometer now reads 12500 miles plus a few. So it can be said that I LOVE Hondas' lil' Sportster clone.
I've spent the past few days removing half of the parts from the frame so I can paint the fins and other engine parts that aren't chromed Matt Black, because to me, a V-Twin engine just doesn't look right without black coling fins (even though it's liquid cooled, honda dressed the engine in fins for looks) After I'm done a good friend of mine, who just happens to be employed as a mechanic for the local Honda dealership, is going to soup up the engine way more than I did with straight pipes and rejet, so I can make a touring machine out of it for next summer. I welcome emails from anyone who wants to talk about bikes, or places to ride anytime.
I promise that after this introductory post, the rest wil be a lot shorter!!![/i][/b]
First of all......windbags are welcome. Just go read some blogs and you'll see..... :laughing:

Secondly....:welcome2: to TMW.

Thirdly.......your bike looks fabulous. :)
thanks for the flowers....since that pic was taken I have made a few changes to the scooter. I removed the pillion seat, removed the stock air box so she can breath now, and removed the baffles from the pipes so she can breath out better. I also changed to Iridium plugs, and switched to
Mobile One V-Twin synthetic oil, and with her breathing better, I achieved
an additional 20MPH on my top end, went from 85 to over 100. It's not that I like to drive fast, my usual cruising speed is around 60-65, but now she can pass the Rocky Mtn Doubles we have on our roads here with no problems. I also painted my Engines fins black, click on the link to see some pics. Merry Christmas.

I'm a late baby boomer who rides both a GoldWing (2008) and a Yamaha 1700 Silverado Cruiser (2006). My wife rides with me about 10% of the time.

To make a living, I'm a corporate slave. I need to get out and start my own thing, but haven't figured out what I want to do when I grow up.

I enjoy the outdoors (when younger, I used to backpack in the Rockies).

My current pursuits are helping my Master Gardener wife with her landscaping and gardening. She says, "Dig the hole here." and I dig. That's the extent of my gardening expertise.

I belong to my church's motorcyle club; we have about 40 members and ride every month.

Hi, Im Mike and new here. Ive ridden Harleys for the past 35 years, and well enough is enough. Had a bad experiance with the local dealer, then corporate so i sold everything Harley and went with a Victory Vision. Let me tell it was the most ugly bike i have ever seen, but one ride and i slowly started to appreciate it. Now after 9 months and 20,000 plus miles i cant imagine riding anything else. Never thought i would stray from HD but.........

I hear ya. I left Harley back in the mid 90's for Triumph, then Kawasaki, but eventually came back. Would have bought a Victory if the dealer network was larger up here, as I was seriously considering the Touring Cruiser at one point.

Well let's see.

68 Honda CL125
71 Honda CB175
75 Kawasaki H1 500
79 Kawasaki KZ650
92 Honda Nighthawk 750
73 Honda CL350
76 Honda CB750

Currently own

04 Kawasaki KLR650
07 Harley Lowrider

I must have a mid life crisis. I bought the KLR after giving up on Honda coming out with a retro bike. I really liked the old scramblers. Then came the Harley. Its ok, but not easy to work on and very expensive.
