Maryland, Checking in!
Howdy! My name is Brad, new to the forum here and still a newbie as far as riding and bike maintenance. I'm almost 20, and aside from working and going to school, the bike is what I like to do. Just wish the winter this year wasn't as crappy, I want to ride! But it's giving me time to work on the essentials.
I got my 1989 Vulcan 750 on July 13th, 2009 after taking the MSF class, and since then have been riding/tweaking the bike. I bought it to help get me out of a down streak, and when the weather is nice enough to ride in, I'm not sitting around anymore, which is definitely a nice change. A lot of the work that I have been doing has been with my neighbor, a family friend who has rebuilt a Honda Rebel 450 and Goldwing, and some of it I've been picking up on my own.
Just wanted to get my name out there, and hopefully in the spring/summer get my bike up to prime operating conditions. I'll apologize if, when asking for help, I refer to certain pieces by incorrect names, I'm entirely new to this field but am trying to learn. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
