Signed up on the forum back in September, but haven't been around since then - not bad manners, just good beer.
Bought my 9'er new in '03 (matte black, TYVM), but I don't take care of her like a lot of you guys do. The oil gets changed and I lube the chain and the cables, but I ain't soakin' no chain in no kerosene.
She's stock, even with the Mickey Mouse mirrors, no sliders, no mods, no bafflectomy.
I like her just fine the way she is - stained pipes and all.
Will be in the market for a new chain this summer sometime. Caught Mike's sticky on the subject, and I'm appreciative of the info.
