Howdy

Hello Everyone,

I am Paul from Columbus OH, I found this forum and have been reading through the treads and found a lot of like minded people that enjoy their bikes.

I don't have a sport bike so I thought I would add a little something different to the forums. I ride a 84 V65 Magna, a 79 Yamaha XS750 Cafe racer and a CB450sc or Nighthawk.

The V65 is my main ride I find that is a good mix of both the sport standard, cruiser, and performs like a sport bike, ok well at least a old sport bike.

I hope I can maybe add a little to your cruiser forum.

Welcome to the fold!

Share some bike pics! I'm especially itching to see the XS750.

Welcome to the forum. I rode a '98 Magna for a while. Nice bike. Best handling cruiser I ever rode, and decent balls too.

Thanks for the welcome!!!
The 750 cafe racer is still under construction but I should have it done before spring at least have it rideable. I don't know if I will ever really get it finnished I think it will allways be a work in progress.

I really like the V65, even for as old as it is it still supprises some sport bikes and I haven't found a harley that I can't out run except for a few V-rods.

I was hours away from having a 84 V65 for my first bike. It sold just before I got there.

I like that creedo, it fits great with my ridding style.
My regular riding budy rides a VFR, another rides a Harley and sometimes ride with a guy on an Aprila and then another on a victory. So as long as you don't ride like an ass I would be happy to ride with about anyone.
I like to say Live to ride, but ride to ride another day!

Yes it is, good call, not a lot of folks know what they are. They are great dogs, mine passed on last Dec. Hope to have a new pup on the spring.

That would be my youngest son in my Av, he loves motorcycles and just about any other type of vehicle.

You're being too easy on the clutch. That thing'll smoke a V-Rod six ways from Sunday! I just sold my '83.

Have you met Moto yet?
