Hi buvoir! Welcome aboard!

We have been in the mid to upper 70s for the past week here, and just broke the record high for the 4th straight day! We've seen 80 a couple times already, and it's staying in the 60s at night. Kinda weird, but I'll take it!

My dear newb Buvoir or drink fountain, the book of newb is quite clear.

You of all people, being a lurker for "a few years" should have this book memorized. One of the chapters in this book states that "long time lurkers shall post pics of their ride and tell the members of the forum, known as forumees, where they ride, what they rode before and any other U.B.I they deem worth saying". I leave it to you to tell the forumees where in the book you found this quote.

Welcome to the forum. You know that a sense of humour is recommended here but a pic of your ride is non negociable.

A few things added and more stuff to follow

Glad to see that spring has finally sprung here in the Northeast. Looking forward to the street sweepers finally doing their job and getting rid of all the sand from the roads!

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

corsair. you crack me up. Dunno how i missed your response. In the couple weeks i've been here, I've already been helped to the tune of saving me at least 500 bucks. I've tried to help a couple. Book of newb? What in the world is that? As far as the other questions. Let's see, I've ridden 300,000 miles on 6 continents and this is my 10th bike! .. ... no, not really. This is my first bike and i ride around upstate new york 3-5k miles a year. Most times solo, but sometimes with a girl riding with me. Usually different girls hehe. I'll check out bevo's links now *wave
