I figured i would start here...
I`m Josh, out of Virginia. I`m not new to forums by any means so i`ll keep this to the point.
I`ve been riding off an on since 2000. Even back when i wasn`t old enough to have an M class license i still had a bike, taking brief breaks now an then for various reasons...financial etc.
I`ve previously had:
89 ninja 500
02 Kawi Vulcan 1500
97 GSXR 750 carbed
06 Honda 599 Hornet
98 GSXR 750 FI
98 VTR 1000 <---still have this, but has no fairings and in need of a carb rebuild
08 Buell XB1200XT
and now an 02 rc51 SP2
Edit: I tried to post pics but i have to have 10 posts first. Which i find strange since most any bike or auto forum i am a member of, people usually rant and complain when a new member doesn`t post pics of their bike in the intro.....i have to say this is a first.
Came with a second engine, 2 tubs of random parts an a assortment of extra fairings. Was an even trade for my Buell.
Perhaps the former owner was a member on this site, who knows. Either way hope he`s having a blast with my/his Buell now since he was specifically looking for a XB12 like mine in his trades...an i was specifically looking for another Honda, either RVT or VFR. So everything worked out for everyone lol.
My only qualms so far are that i have big feet and my heels keep touching the exhaust pipe. Other than that it`s been great thus far. Anyone know of a heat shield for behind the rear sets? I`de like to avoid melted rubber on my pipes...
