Hello From SC.

Hello, I'm Srinath. Hoping to pick up a 950 bolt in the next few weeks.
New to this forum and the 950 but not to motorcycles. This would be my 44th, but 17 of those were GS500's. 6 were savages, 4 were eliminators and 4 were nighthawks, 3 virago's (2 535's and 1 1100) etc etc.
Hoping to make a TB114 style out of a C spec preferably using the cafe seat but setting it up like the TB114.
Thanks, looking forward to learning and riding and modding this new bike.
Srinath.

Not sure how I feel about a guy having 44 motorcycles?!

Im on my 3rd and Im 60.

You got some explaining to do. Did you wreck them all? forget to put oil in the crankcases?!

LOL, For a few years I had more motorcycles than years on this planet.
I ran a repair shop of sorts. GS500 a plenty were bought fixed and flipped. For a few years 2005, 06 and 07 I was flipping 10 bikes a year.

I am "the buddha" on GSTwin.com - Honestly, that's my handle - not because I am enlightened LOL - and I developed a way of jetting them without a DJ kit. On the GS atleast DJ kit does nothing to alleviate the low rpm issues and it usually screws up the higher rpm as well. Since these things are rife with carb problems, it brought me in touch with a lot of problem bikes and hence the fix and flip situations.

Cool.
Srinath.

Good deal. If you can turn your hobby into a business you get to write off a lot of money you spend as a business expense.

Buddha is one of those words that does not translate into english syntax very well. The best translation is

"The Enlightened One"

so that makes "The Buddha" = The The Enlightened One.

When you obtain enlightenment, you become Buddha.


Kinda like the City of Los Angeles Angels (baseball team) because Los Angeles means City of Angels.

so you end up with "the city of the city of Angels Angels"...

Hidden redundancy.
