Here is who I am!

I started riding in 1965 on a Honda 50 sport. I have had several bikes over the years mostly Honda's including a CL77 scrambler, 450 scrambler and the CB750. I did have Norton 750 Commando (the one I wish I never sold!) that I paid $900.00 for in '69. I didn't ride for a number of years and then bought a Vino 125 about 6 years ago. Just this year I bought a XS650 and just recently a '99 V Star 1100 custom that I am getting to know.

I am on the XS650 Forum which is a great one with lots of riders with good help and I am wanting the same with this forum. I am a little intimidated with the V Star for now but I know I will be able to do a lot of the maintenance myself. I have done maintenance for a living with industrial machines and the other bikes I have had for a number of years.

Everything is a bit easier when you pick up the service manual to your new ride, not perfect mind you, but easier to get aquainted with the bike.
