Old owner, new to the site

Purchased 2001 650 right off the show room floor...had never been on a bike a day in my life. Even had to have a buddy ride it home for me because I didn't have my liscense yet. Had the bike about a month before I was struck in a walmart parking lot by a lovely little old lady that "didn't see me". Spent the next few years rebuliding the bike and getting her ready to ride again. She started out purple and ended up OD green.

Welcome to the 4M!
The olive drab green and the tan leather seat always look nice together.

Whats with Walmart parking lots, I got hit by a mini van walking from my car to the door.

Sadly the "little old lady" drove off before I got any information... Stalked the parking lot for a month to see if she would return, but no luck.

Walmart parking lots scare the crap out of me. I try to avoid them unless I'm driving a tank.
