Hello from New Hampshire

Hello to all fellow riders out there!
Just retired from Tucson, AZ after 24 years of Air Force service and moved to NH to begin my second career. Own a 1993 Max and looking forward to riding the scenic roads of the Northeast! Hope to meet some of you fellow riders during my travels. Also, I may be looking for a good carb tuner in the near future, as we just had a baby and I may not have time to take them apart myself to tinker! As you V-Max riders know, it takes a special carb guy to get them puppies purring just right; anyone have any recommendations in the Northeast area?

Welcome Mainidiot!

Best wishes in your second career removing snow!

Post up some pics of that sweet ride - Annie gets upset if you don't post pics (she prefers big ones, none of that thumbnail crap).

Welcome to the forum you ex Air Force type of guy you. I'm ex Air Force to. Why did you paint your ride dark brown? It really doesn't set off the cafe racer style your trying to get. If your carbs pur; get the cats off of them. Their fur will block the jets in no time .

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Hey welcome to the forum! As you can see folks here are very serious, and will offer very good no nonsense advice. You might also notice how much we like pictures on MC!
