Thanks for adding me

I'm 71 years young. My first bike in 1965 was a Ducati Bronco (you get what you can afford). Since then they've proliferated. I currently have five bikes: V- Star 1100 (2002), V-Star 650 (2004), Kawasaki 1700 Vulcan with Champion sidecar (2010) (my dog insists on riding with me sometimes), Valkyrie (2000), and a custom HD Softtail (2007). No more bikes for a while.
I'm here to pick up ideas for maintenance, repairs, etc.

Welcome from Columbus, OH! Sounds like you have quite the garage going. You will find many helpful people who can assist with most issues. From what I have seen they are able to converse on whatever level you can comprehend on so you landed in the right spot! I would suggest snooping around and seeing what info is out there already. Remember tho...The dumbest question is the one not asked! Enjoy!

Welcome sounds like you are well versed in the world of riding. Stop by often for information both ways.
Will you be my dad? You will probably need help keeping fresh gas in all of those bikes.

Welcome from East Tennessee!
Sounds like an interesting stable you have there! Ditto on the pics and being 71 years young, you’ll inspire a lot of people that state they’re too old to ride, lol.
