New member, just saying 'hi'
Hi. I just signed up for this forum yesterday. I have been lurking around for a while, and figured I would make it official.
I ride a 1993 VN750. It is actually my second one. Back in 1997 I bought a 93 and rode it for a couple of years. I had a bad crash on it and the bike was totalled. Obviously I was not totalled, but I did get pretty messed up. It has taken me a very long time to get back riding again. Every spring when the bikes started coming out here in NJ, I would think about it. Just couldn't get back on. By chance, this June I happened to find a great deal on the exact same bike I had. I bought it and I am so glad to be back riding again after 10 years.
At first it was a little weird getting on the EXACT same bike that I had 10 years ago. My friends see it as a jinx, but since I don't believe in superstitions I just see it as riding what I liked and was used to.
The first week I had it I broke down near home. Ended up having to replace a bad regulator. Now it runs like a champ.
I'm so happy to be back riding again. I am now 10 years older, hopefully wiser, and definitley more aware of the hazards that are out there every day.
That's all. Just wanted to stop in and say hi. Thanks for a great site full of tons of valuable information on the Vulcans.
