Just found this site so I joined to read and learn from others. My last bike 1980 Honda cb900 custom, which's was a 10-speed shaft drive. It was good to me. Now rolling on this 2007 XVS1300. I am a retired Millwright and hotrod guy. My other toys a 57 Chevy Drag car, and 2003 SSR. I hope to fit in with all here. Ed The REBEL with a cause.

Welcome from the FL panhandle. As to fitting in; the car. Very nice looking and I'm sure the blue will be much nicer, but for me, I wouldn't want to turn that into a hot rod (at least on the outside). Wait a minute, maybe its me that doesn't fit in here.

I have been down the Dragon three times with my SSR truck. I do not know if I would ride down there that far with the bike. It has to be double up with the wife and she is what sets the trip odometer. :)

Lol, why would I?

They haven't won a cup since before I was born 52 years ago.

I hate to say it but,
Go Detroit!

Welcome from Cypress, TX. Love the color of that bike. I am a car guy as well and am beginning a project on my wife's 1950 Pontiac Chieftain. Doing this because she allows me my toys and should have one of her own. You will find a lot of car guys here on the forum and from time to time discussions have turned to cars. Ride safe. Ride often. See you out on the road.
