Hi all!

I finally bought a bike. 1989 VN750 - 15,000 miles on her and she's in great shape. I'm just starting out, never rode a street bike before. In fact it's been 30 yrs since I rode a friends bike once or twice (a 250 enduro I think it was). I took the MSF course in June 09 & have logged about 800 miles since. Now I have my girl on the back and it's been great. The weather hasn't always been good but what can ya do. I have some friends to ride with, Harley's, Drifters so I'm not alone. Participated in a few benifits and just pick up and go when I can. I would like to get some extras for the bike and thought I may find some ideas around here.

Ride on!

Welcome. Certainly endorse everything OlHoss says above. My '89 was never lubed by the factory.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
