Hi to all of you out there.
My first bike was a slightly used 1969 Suzuki Hustler 250cc. I rode it for almost 3 years then traded it in on a brand new 1971 Triumph 650cc Bonneville. I rode that for a total of 10 years. Then I hung up my helmet and got married. Now almost 40years later my friend just gave me a 1991 Yamaha Venture Royal XVZ1300D full dresser. The engine runs really good, the brakes seem to work great, but the clutch wont disengage. Oh well, never look a gift horse in the mouth.
I guess it's time to start pulling on some wrenches.
Hope I can get it fixed before my retraining course finishes.
See you on the road (Hopefully not on the side of the road.)

I plan to. But right now just dealing with the passing of my wive of 44 years. I hope to have the bike road worthy by September.
