Yep.  I've met him a few times before.  He's a bit better on the viffer than I am.  All of us viffer guys are sleeping hooligans in disguise.

Hi all,
My very first post on easttnbikers. I'm pleased and proud to be a member.

Here is a little background on my motorcycle life. I've been riding two wheels since my buddy used to let me ride his Allstate moped in the yard around the house when I was in the 5th grade. That was about umpteen years ago. Since then, I've worked in motorcycle shops and put lots of miles on a number of different motorcycles. There have been years when I rode 12/52, regardless of weather, but thankfully I don't have to do that anymore.

I currently ride an '06 FZ6, which is the best bike I've owned so far. It has taken me to Omaha and back twice, Indianapolis for the GP last year, somewhere north of Dayton, Ohio last summer and a total of just over 16,000 miles since I bought it last August.

This looks like a good thing that Curt and Dustin are doing. I'll be happy to help out any way I can.

Gary

Thanks Sam.  May take you up on that. 

I guess you can't be too much of a holigan on one but you can sure surprise a few people given that it's a "heavy and underpowered" bike.  My inner squid has come out a time or two and juiced a wheelie though.  I never thought it would do it until I discovered the trick by mistake.  Professional rider and closed course, of course.

I actually posted mine for sale since I bought the Tuono.  I love the VFR though and keep having second thoughts about selling it.  I've gotten more compliments on that bike...  It's so dang pretty.

Hello,

My name is Joe, 46 years old and live in Cleveland TN.  I have been a motorcycle nut for many years, I really like the old stuff (HD Indian, etc.) but love ALL bikes and really enjoy wrenching (beer too).  I am having a blast on my 86 Honda XL600 exploring the back/dirt/ranger roads in  the Cherokee National Forest.  I can't believe how much fun it is an can't wait for it to warm up again.

I am thinking about organizing a swap meet in Cleveland in March, there don't seem to be a lot of them around nearby and by golly we all need parts!

Joe

Hi Y'all,
I was a "biker" for awhile back in the 70's and 80's. You know the typical big V twin, dressed like a pirate kinda guy. Thank goodness that's past.
 Now I am a motorcycle rider.
Ive come a long way from the ol Honda C200 back in the mid 1960's to my current and favorite bike ever, KLR685. I get to ride most days now. I do own an old Honda station wagon that I can drive when its below 20 degrees.
I'm bad to lurk but wanted to say hello.

Hi all, I am oldmanjob = Bill :D I live in Dana NC, just outside Hendersonville NC. I started riding in 1969, on a 100cc Moto Beta. After dealing with a case of road rash, I went enduro riding and racing until the middle 70's. Took a 30+ year hiatus and in 2006 purchased a 2006 Black Bonneville. In 2008 my beloved Bonnie made love to a guard rail (with my help), and sent me to hospital with 5 broken ribs. (thank goodness for ATGATT). After a month and a half of recoup time T started riding my wife's 2003 100th Anniversary 883 Hugger Sportster. Found out quickly the ribs were still in healing stage.  In Aug of 2009 after being shaken to death enough on this solid mounted Sportster (gave it a chance and put 8,000+ miles on it :o) I purchased my V7C and have not looked back. This summer with my two son's and Joe's father-in-law went on a 1750 mile trip to where ever. The V7C turned out to be a great tourer nd pack mule, as it had to share the load after sons VTX 1800's water pump deep sixed.

Thanks! I did the work myself other than the paint. I got it about a year and a half ago from New York, started cleaning it up (New York winters are hell on bikes) and then my brother tossed it while his bike was down for maintenance. So it spent last winter going down to the frame. Painted or polished everything, ditched the mag wheels for spokes, custom seat, Ohlin's knock-offs, Progressive fork springs, SS braided lines, CBR rotors and Kawi twin piston calipers, tossed the points for a Dyna-S electronic ignition, GS1100 aluminum swingarm and other minor tweaks. Eventually I may put inverted forks from a newer GSXR on but I want to find a set of wire wheels wide enough for that first as I love the look of the spokes. Right now she's getting some electronics surgery, everything will be mounted on a plate under the seat, modern fuse panel,  MOSFET regulator/rectifier from a newer R1 and battery under the tail. I'll make a project post in the proper forum some time after the holidays.
