Hello from upstate NY . . .

Greetings!

I spend the summer months near Albany, NY and the other 8 months in Winter Haven, FL. I ride a 650 Classic that I bought last June. I'm now looking to upgrade to an 1100 and am actively shopping. I've been lurking for a while and enjoy the learning here on the forum. Anyone in my area(s)? Give me a shout out. I also spend a bit of time in Old Forge, NY on weekends.

Thanks,
Mike

Here's my 650. I put a few other bikes i've owned in an album here somewhere.

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you'll find a very nice RED 1100 pretty soon . If you ever come up to the Ottawa/Gatineau area, drop me a line and we could ride around the area.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Welcome. I live in Albany. Maybe we can ride sometime. Also there is a place that has done my work in East Greenbush which is like 5-10 mins from Albany if that. He is great and decent prices. he customizes V Stars.

Thanks for the info jmanor. I just made a deal tonight on an '04 1100 and will pick it up tomorrow evening. Then i'll look at some customizing.
I'm in Niskayuna so a good stretch from EG. That's no problem for good service though.

Thanks!

I was going to buy an 04 1100 from Ronnies in Guilderland. Nisky is not far at all from Albany any not too far from EG plus if Jon at RCC can save you some money its worth the trip. He does alot of custom work, I didn't liek the OEM light bar on my classic so he fabricated putting the turn signals attached to my headlight and cleaned up the front.
