Welcome sharky!

Love the Dells - spent several years in Madison at the Medical School (still have an Ariens snow blower to prove it!).

Tell us a bit more about yourself, other bikes you've ridden, where you like to ride, how many times you've been arrested at Sturgis, etc. . . .

And for the love of cheese curds and spotted cow, post up some pics of that bike!

Welcome to the forum eh. Nice scoot the 650 is. Bets ya it's red with black accents and tons of chrome. A pic or two would prove this to be true, yes? You'll find lots of good folks here, make new friends and even a partner or two to go riding with.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Thanks guys -

yes, its red, matched my Camaro and Charger Daytona.

Well, lets see. Started riding on a Honda Ascot 500 wich is a wierd little bike but it was alot of fun running around the dells and learning on. After that I rode my dads hand me down Yamaha Maxim 750 for alot of years untill it died on me, then i picked up this little gem. I'm a pretty short guy so i like the low style bikes. Been to sturgis a few times but never been arrested, though i have been riding around without a valid M class for the last however many years. I'm glad to say that i am legal now and hope to stay that way. lol

Welcome from Wisconsin Rapids. Lived in the Dell's for about five years until I moved to Rapids last year. I have patiently been waiting for some sun. I seem to get about one ride in a week and the rest of the days are rainy or too cold like today.

I hear ya brother. Just glad the snow and ice are finally off the road. A little warm weather would go along way toward some riding.
