Neat a Noobie forum
Been a while since I've posted in one of these

HI! I live in the area, work in the area, and decided to join you nuts on the road & superslab.

I currently ride a 95 XT225 to work and back occasionally playing in traffic around here. It is a loaner bike while I get comfortable with the road. Soon it will be replaced with a 81 Goldwing Interstate. For that, I have plans and it won't be keeping it's fairing for long .

Took the MSF early last month, and my endorsement. I look forward to chatting & riding with you "all"

Thanks!

- Chris

Close, a little too "hotrod" for my tastes as this will also be a daily commuter.

I'm really digging this look.


Edit: I know this forum is chock full of sport bikes so I have to say I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE me some sport bikes. But I'm bad enough in my Honda (cages) and don't feel like dieing too early (yet) :-p

Oh no, I know myself very well

That aside, yes. Learning is half the fun

Mmmmmm, I've now upgraded from the XT to a couch on wheels.

As I'm riding it home from Canby, OR to Tacoma.


Removed the rear "luggage" before Radio removal.


Removing Radio and cleaning everything up.


Strike a Pose!


Hrm, I'm missing pics of after radio removal... I'll get on that.

They say these bikes are well balanced. I'll have to look into Handlebar controls
Edit: Seems my "rank" is well titled lol

Have to agree with Pete on needing longer legs. Not sure how much it could be lowered, but I think lowering it 2 1/2 feet might be out of the question?



Rip it, strip it into a heavy weight café!



P.S. Very cute.

Maybe a set of these 8"ers would lower me enough


I'll be going with the "naked" GoldWing style. That is after I figure out an electrical gremlin that cropped up this morning >_<

Edit: I LOVE this look
