Hi ^_^

I am thtanner's other half and I figured I might as well post hello. I am just getting into motorcycles as he probably has expressed. I plan on giving my girl a bit of a tank face lift in my own style down the road and I might even help him with the dirty work fixing her up. ^_^

Welcome aboard!

I love that you both ride....my other half is not confident enough to get her own bike, but then again I won't have to work on 2 bikes like Thtanner...lol

His and hers...love it!

Thanks for the warm welcome ^_^

TBH, I am really only timid about working on my bike because I know nothing about them. Give me a car to fix or a tranny to rebuild and I am pretty comfortable ^_^

well, if you can rebuild a transmission, you will find the bike very simple to work on... I was intimidated at first. then realized all my automotive and diesel knowledge made working on bikes a breeze.
