New owner

Hey folks,
I am new to the motorcycle owner scene, I have an 04 VN 750 that I recently picked up. Glad to have a forum to go to in reference to this bike. I'm sure I'll be here a lot.

Welcome from the Ozarks. These are great bikes. I got a low mileage '04 in July and put over 4K mi on it by end of December. I recommend doing the "checks" listed on this forum. My drive shaft coupling was dry (no grease), but undamaged. Going to start riding again when temps hit mid 40's.

In God we trust. All others pay cash.
