New guy from Topeka, KS

What's up everyone. So I bought my 95 a few years ago. I just got it up and running right in time for Kansas summer. Had an electrical problem, and sat all winter. Needed a new junction box. But we got it all fixed!

I do love this bike. It's fast enough to keep up with the big boys, but not fast enough to kill yourself.

Posted a few pictures. The last picture was my first actual ride, the week of buying the bike. We rode to our lake. Mine is the furthest, the one in the middle is an 05 HD Sportster (which he now owns 2010 wide glide), and the closest was my buddies 03 Vulcan 1500 (which was traded for a Victory which in turn that was traded for a Road King.)

Truth. Don't get me wrong, I still have the utmost respect for her. You HAVE to have that respect, know the limitations.

welcome to the group! the bike looks great!
Just curious what type of issue you had and what you did to fix the electrical issue. Did you repair or replace the junction box?
