Yet another n00b from AZ!

#1 Unread post by Ions001 » Thu Nov 03, 2005 12:08 pm

Howdy all! Yet another person from AZ! :D

My bike is a 1980 GS1000G (Shafties rule!) It's my restore project, and my daily driver. As a matter of fact, it's the only vehicle I've ever owned that's gotten better looking while I owned it. (I've been referred to at times as "automotive death" :lol: )

I hope you don't mind all the pics in my intro... I just love my bike!

When I first got her:

Then went to this:

And her current state:

Well, my x-wife would never allow me to have a motorcycle before, so my first bike was a divorce present to myself. :twisted:

Three years ago I purchased my first bike, a Suzuki Marauder 800. I had to sell it a year and a half later to pay the rent (really long and dramatic story there), but I picked this one up last May.

Nice lookin' bike. Gotta love those old UJMs. I like it a lot better without the giant Windjammer and the bags. Those are great for long-haul touring, but I don't care for them on a daily driver.

We've just started getting some of the best riding weather of the year, so go have fun with it!

I used to live in Mesa, Arizona a few years back (510 South Extension, Apartment #1029 to be exact). Lovely seasonal changes out there. There's hot, hotter, God I can't breathe outside it's so hot, and plasma.

Beautiful, clean freeway system, though! :laughing:
