Hello from NC foothills!!!

Hey guys, I am from North Carolina and am proud to say that my first bike is a 95 VN750. I paid 725 for it and have put plenty of love into it. Many big plans surround it and I hope that it serves me well. I am a photographer and this bike seems to love the camera.

welcome and the same thing has been said about me personally..but my bike looks good even up close,If I were a major league ball player I'd be highly sought after . A .500 average is considered awesome...It's all about perspective

I love that picture too, many people cant believe that that is my bike, they think its a magazine shot. I took it near fort fisher NC while i was on vacation. I still can't get over how many people love these bikes, I've had Harley riders complement me! I look forward to many years of service out of this bike and wonder if i'll run into any of you guys. BTW my new sig showcases some of the work done.

Sad news, T`pal got backed into while my dad had her parked (i was gone for the week). Silver lining: alot of the restoration work will be done by the shop payed by the other guys insurance (only whats damaged though).
