rejoining the hive...

hello all, was a member here a couple of years ago, joining while i was in iraq...posted pretty regularly then just kind of dropped off.

But...i'm back.

Soooo...name's matt, i'm in the army, was an ah-64 apache crewchief, now i'm a uh-60 crewchief in the medevac. Stationed back at fort bragg, NC.

I ride a 2001 harley sporster that i've cafe'd (well...still in the process of really...lol) out, that i ride as my main transportation. I always loved this forum due to the wide range of perspectives and wealth of knowledge that frequents it. Glad to be back, don't know why i drifted away.

Some pics of my bike:

A great deviation from the standard "Add more chrome." I like the look. Welcome back!

thanks for the kind words all...there's so much more to be done to it still...it's so much damn fun to ride though it makes it worth it.

I'm really glad to be back, like i said, this forum has so much good info, and had a lot of cool folks and looks like it still does.
