New guy here, but not new to bikes.

I'm in Virginia Beach at the moment, been riding for almost a year now on my 1987 CMX250C. I'm not certified as a mechanic but I know my way around bikes. (Well, carb bikes anyway. I never messed with an EFI.) My hobbies are restoring old bikes, riding, gaming, art, etc. I signed up here because I took on a project bike, a 1997 Vulcan 750, and knew I would need to ask questions, look at diagrams, and maybe beg for cheaper parts than eBay has to offer. That's pretty much it!
