Welcome to the forum. I will use my phsycic powers and predict that you . . . are from Hawaii, . . . you ride . . . xvs1300 . . . and . . . you are under the age of 80! (DAM i'm good)

Welcome to our little place on the interweb. It's a fun place to hang out at with lots of great people that love to brag about their ride. Oh and by the way, pics would be nice.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Thanks for the welcome.

SparkyD, are you really saying "say more"? Well, I do feel a little insecure about having such a small bike. It's been great for commuting, and I tell myself that the poor sods that don't ride think it's badder than it is. Picture coming.

Nothing to be embarrassed about here (unless it's a BLUE BIKE). 250, 650, 950, 1100, or whatever. If it's 2 wheel threrapy then join in this fun forum

Hang out here long enough and you will discover that the peeps here actually like to peep!

Seriously though, everyone here seems to love all types of bikes (except possibly Harleys) and it doesn't matter what you ride as long as it has two wheels and you actually ride! The more info you give about your ride and yourself, the more the 4M will soak up! Pics are always welcome, even of stock bikes.

Ride safe, ride often and have fun
