Hi all!
Rob from Nj here. I'll give a brief motorcycling biography. 54 years old, started riding at 25 on a Yamaha XS650 Special. Took that bike on a three month cross country trip in 1986. I was hooked on motorcycle camping. Then in '88 bought a '79 XS650. In 1990 I switched to the dark side selling both Yamahas and buying a Sportster 883 which I bored out to 1200. Spent my time motorcycle camping every year in New England and Canada.
In 1999 I bought a Buell Lightning. In 2005 I switched back to Yamaha with a YZF600R which I rode to the MotoGP races in Indianapolis. Sold that in 2012 and bought a V Star 1100. Back on the Sportster in 2015 and then back on the Buell in 2017 taking it to the Smokys. Realizing I needed a more capable touring platform I picked up a 2007 XVS 1300 in November. Look forward to putting many miles on her.:smile:
