New to the Forums

Hello everyone just wanted to stop in and say hello. I'm new to the forums but far from new on my RC. I have a 2001 when i bought this bike i waited for for alomst 3 weeks on a waiting list here in Las Vegas to get one. It now has just a little over 26,000 miles. my moto is i bought it to ride, i really don't have any mods done, just the other day i did order a new windscreen. I have all my maintenance records, I think im almost ready for a valve adjustment and i did start to notice seeping from my right from fork seal. I have never once droped her. But anyways i'm ranting she will see the shop next week for some service. The other day i was out riding and RC pulls up next to me so the guy asks if i would meet him at the gas station so i did and we started talking his bike had less the 9k on it and mine with 26k looked cleaner then his. point of all this is i really take care of her. If anyone has some ideas on service or some good performance tips i would be open to talk about it. I would post a pic but i dont know how lol
