Each spring there are many riders trying to wake their bike up from a winter nap or new to them rides and are having issues. There's a many here who will share their experience in an attempt to get you safely on the road. A few things that really help us is your location and some bike details. If you fill out your profile with at least your state it gives us an idea if climate has an impact on issue. Also fill out a signature line with bike info, that way we know which year, make and model you have at just a glance. Another great tool is the filling out "My Showcase". If you post several pictures of your bike and a good description it really helps. Being able to see your bike helps a lot. If you have a question please post in the appropriate thread for better exposure from other members to assist you with as much detail as possible, model specific forum works best. The New Members Introduction forum is for us to know you. A brief hello, type of bike, riding experience, etc is great for the introduction. Then you can post issue in appropriate thread. For those who usually post suggestions for repairs did I forget anything?

To fill out "My Showcase"

First click on your avatar:

I see a few new garages, thanks. Don't forget to update your signature when any changes are made to your bike.

I like this new thread Les! If you have a pic of your bike when you first join, it’s helpful in several ways. We want to get to know everyone know matter what you ride, and where you’re from. Our forum is divided up in different regions and it helps us to see growth and interests in riding. Just like our upcoming second Southeast Members Rally in September. You don’t have to live in the Southeast to attend, but we have a lot of members in that region, us included, and Nurteaff and several others saw the interest in hosting a rally and we all loved it! We now have extended friendships and love hanging out together. Thanks again for starting this Les, and let’s see where everyone is from and a pic of your garage/workshop area.

I couldn’t agree more!
Can you imagine if some of the other regions got together for a rally and then we plan a national rally in the future how much fun we’d have? Lol.

National rally would be super cool! Sounds like a full time job to organize it though lol

As talented as everyone is on our forum, we could organize it as a group representing all of our regions. I’d push for Yamaha Corporate to be involved, just thinking out loud here, lol.

Nice Blazer, Keith! And compared to my junk collector out back (that started out as a garage) yours looks pretty nice! I can barely turn my bike around in mine!

Not many trucks like that around here unless they've been restored. This part of the world is very hard on vehicles. My 06 Ram needs rockers, doors and probably a new box. Almost every one I see of that age has the same issues. Salt makes the roads passable in winter but it just eats cars.

Thanks NorthernRider! I can only imagine how much damage the salt causes.
Very little surface rust on this Blazer and they’re getting more rare all the time.

I updated how to complete "My Showcase" that used to be "Garage" in the old format and how to complete your "signature" in the first post of this thread. If you have not filled out both, please do. Filling out this info assists with future questions you might have for the forum about your bike. Thanks.

I can tell you 1st hand how much damage salt can do. Just look at the rockers on my 01 gmc, oh that is right you can't because they aren't there anymore they rusted off.
I can't remember the last time i saw lockout hubs.

Dude, somebody stole your front fender. BTW, if this is the shot of not being organized, you are WAY too worried about being organized. The letters, O, C, and D come to mind. (I'm just jealous. I have zero organizational skills.)
