Hello from the Triangle area of North Carolina! First off, I will admit, the Yamaha is not mine. It's the wife's ride. I have a Suzuki Boulevard, but...I figured since I'm going to be the one doing all the upkeep and modifying of her bike I would join you fine folks as well. If you feel the need to flog me now, so be it. Just know I like most two wheelers. Except for those pesky gnat like scooters. lol

Welcome from your neck of the woods! (near Lake Wheeler). Wait, I meant welcome to your wife. ;-) We like pictures. Which bike does she have?

You're never really lost on a bike. You're just riding somewhere you haven't ridden before.
