DelaWhere???

Hi All! Just picked up my "new to me" 95 VN750. I've never been so excited for a trip to the DMV. I went through a lot of the posts on here prior to making the purchase, and now that it's officially in my garage, I figured I'd introduce myself.

Bike has 11K on the clock, looks like he rode off the showroom floor straight into his garage and left it idle in first gear on the center stand for 11K...pristine! Gave me the cover, a helmet (now I have 3), and a Clymer manual. Between that and this site, I should have all maintenance bases covered!

Anyway, thought I'd say hello, and let everyone know I'll be checkin' in!

My other bike is a 78 KZ750. It's been sitting in the garage for too long now, patiently waiting for a rather large tune-up/overhaul/update/etc... My wife kind of "talked me into" buying another bike that was running, so we could work on the KZ without trying to rush to get out on the road.

"Talked me into" - lol - I think she jokingly said something like, "if we had another bike you could ride while we fix that one" - lo & behold, 3 days later we have the VN....but it's nice to be able to say, "Well, a second bike was actually YOUR idea!"
