Hello from Illinois

Hey guys and gals, I'm new to this forum as a member, but have spent quite a bit of time reading the great information. I am the proud owner of a 2004 VN750 completely bone stock that I picked up a year ago for $2000 with only 6600 miles on it. I figure it was a hell of a deal, an she's been great.

I had to have a buddy ride it home for me due to lack of license. My buddy by the way owns a big Harley, and was seriously impressed with the power the little bike has. His exact words to me were "my bike is twice the size of yours and I KNOW you'd dust me in a heartbeat" love my little 750!!

Thanks for the welcome.

@JCee, I'm in Bloomington, you?

@Branson, I'll have to check that out.

@OlHoss, I've put about a thousand miles on her. Mostly in town and in the surrounding countryside.

@OldBikeNewRider, this is a great forum. Lots of really good info. from good people.
