Hi all, My nmae is Chris. I have rode since I was probably 12. I love bikes. I like to work on them. I like to try to see if I can find out what is wrong with them. I have zero experience but I have recently found that I can do more than I thought. Currently I ride a 1600 Meanstreak.

Hi Bartman here(Mark) I recently passed the BRC and got my first bike. It's a 1986 Virago 700. I've been lurking here quite a while and liked what I saw.

Hello all, I've just bought a Triumph Sprint Executive 1998 900cc's after not having a bike for 30 years. Made the three hour ride to Port Dover Ontario, Canada Friday 13th. You all need to check out Port Dover for next year. Any way, I'm just getting my riding butt back and loving every mile of it.

I'm Minicog, I'm 17 and go to a college in Dallas but go home to ride the twisites in the pines of East Texas. Arkansas's Ozarks = Motorcycle heaven in my mind. I've had 3 Honda's over the years and 2 Kawasakis.

Some of you may know my dad, KB (KB Forkbrace, KB risers, etc.), I had a picture taken with him by a guy that had our forkbrace, bar risers and mounts for calipers on over-sized brakes for the old Connie. That was pretty awesome.

I have a 2007 250 Ninja, 2005 Uncorked XR650R and a 2003 KLX400R. I love riding and paid for all the bike's I've had/have. I've been doing stuff for my dad since I was 8, so I pretty much don't want to be a machinist my whole life.

That's about it.

That question is best asked in the "Motorcycle Garage" sub-forum.

Name is Sonny, starting racing motocross when I was 8, and have been riding motorcycles for most of my 49 years. I have also road raced, and desert raced in AZ. Currently living in Santa Fe NM, and most of my riding these days is done in the dirt, on either my Husky TE450, Husky TE610, or the big 1200GS. OH and BTW I really enjoy spending some of my money at Motorcycle Superstore!

Just checking in. I stumbled across these forums this morning and thought I'd sign up. It never hurts to have more resources and outlets for looking at bikes!

My name's Phil & my current ride is an '06 Kawasaki KLR 650. I've been riding enduros for thirty years. The KLR is an excellent ride for commuting and riding on country roads here in Kansas.

Hi Guys (& Girls), greetings from across the Atlantic. As my name suggests, I live in the Netherlands. I have two motorcycles: a BMW R80RT that's converted into a sort of cafe cruiser (if that is a proper label), and a Moto Guzzi V50 Monza. I hope to ride a motorcycle across the American continent one day. For now, I settle for being among friends.

PS: I don't seem to be able to insert a picture... huh... Okay, I'll try uploading.
