Thanks for the welcome guys, good to be here. Yeah, I've heard about them "left-coasters"!! I'm loving the 'ol Roadie the more I ride it. It's still got a little work to be done, evidently the previous owner was a tinkerer too, but that'll be a winter project. Planning on hard bags and a fairing, gotta get back as close to the Venture as I can. BTW hdeater, how do you like that Reckless fairing? I'm between that one and a new Invicta that a friend has for sale. I've also got some "leftovers" from both bikes that I'd like to offer for sale here if that's okay. Oh yeah hd, how'd you know mine was gray??
