Heya fellow members of the fraternal order of motorcyclists. Quick intro here, I was invited here from another forum by jetblast10 (assuming the name's the same here, I logged in as SSBBC at said other forum).
Anyways I have a garage full of 'em, guilty as charged. Been riding since 1997, still got that first bike. Quit drinking a year later and used all the extra cash to buy more, quickly discovered that no vice is cheap. Just traded the buzz for a roar. Check them out at http://shadow-shack.20m.com
, it's pop-up central there so enable your blocker software. Sorry, spend too much on modding bikes to afford a fancy site so I'm stuck with the free "ad supported" servers LOL
Anyways, as you can tell by the site I'm into chopping them. Which isn't to say I dislike the other styles...I secretly yearn for a dual sport (300-400cc range) and/or a sport standard (SV-650 or 750 Nighthawk) but I might be tempted to rake and extend them too...sacrilege?
The past few years I became an advocate for MC safety, helping to co-host the former BeginnerBikes.com site and an active member at the two offshoot sites (beginnerandbeyond.com and beginnerbikers.org). After experiencing a fair variety of machines (besides my own I had a 1500 Vulcan and rode freinds' sportbikes such as a CBR1000 Hurricane, ZX-6R, Buell Thunderbolt) along with a host of others such as Magnas and Harleys, so I firmly believe through experience that a new rider should start out with the right bike.
