Roadlinin' through waving wheat...

Hey Folks,


New to the forum. Just purchased my first Yamaha (2007 Roadliner) yesterday. Decided to upgrade to something with a little more oomph from my VTX1300S.
She came fully dressed (windshield, sissy bar, back seat, driver back rest, etc.) but I like my bike stripped down a bit. Took out the allens and sockets and after 15 min or so, she was perfect.
Already put 250 miles on it, and damn, they were sweet. Looking forward to seeing the forum can offer by way of advice and how-to's. Anyone in the KC area, feel free to shoot me a message if you are out riding. Any excuse to put the miles on is fine with me.

Happy and safe riding all.

Welcome nickfry1! Very impressive intro, and ride! Glad you joined us, and we have some members in the KC area. Royals fan by chance? I pickup a lot of their games locally on the MLB network. Ride safely, and looking forward to your contributions.

"Royals Fan" is an understatement. From the months of April through September (and October, God willing), 162 of my evenings are pretty much spoken for.
If you can, shoot me in the direction of the those KC metro. A group ride would be a good time.

I enjoyed watching them the past two years in the playoffs and then the world series. They're a blast to watch.

Welcome Nick, from southwestern PA. Congratulations. Nice ride! Is that "Galaxy Blue"? I'm sure the (s)miles will add up quickly.

Welcome to the forum Nick. Your passion for the Royals might take a back burner once you really get into riding your roady. Just sayin eh, Go Jays Go!

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.
