Thumbs up As the name says

Hi all,

I'm from located in south central Pennsylvania. Chambersburg if you know that tiny town. I grew up riding dirt bikes and had a little Fat Boy when I was younger. But this is my first real motorcycle! I'm a pretend mechanic that actually works in healthcare. I came here because I just bought an '89 750 and am slowly trying to make it road worthy. (slowly because I can't blow a bunch of money at once on it, not because I'm patient or anything.

Thanks for all your future help and I hope I can help out some too!

-George

Welcome to the group from Lebanon PA, I've done a lot of wrenching on these bikes so if you get in a jam I might be able to help you out.

Thanks, I might have to take you up on that later on. I've got some electrical issues I think, might need to replace the r/r. My bike seems to backfire after it's started up for a bit as well, makes me think it needs rejetted but unsure.
